Mark Gatiss sighting!

Today, while walking around London with my former professor, I saw Mark Gatiss – the writer for Doctor Who, the creator of Sherlock, and actor who plays Mycroft Holmes.  Mycroft is my second favorite character on the show, after Sherlock of course.  Mr. Gatiss was on the sidewalk, going the opposite way as us, so I got a really good look.  It was this guy:

No question about it.  It was him.

He was wearing jogging clothes and was carrying groceries.  So maybe, just maybe, he lives nearby.  This sighting was only about 5 minutes from my res hall.  Google says that he lives in Islington (far north east of where I saw him), but who knows? Maybe he has a flat in central London for the show.  In fact, I’d be shocked if he didn’t.

I was kind of staring at him as he was getting closer.  Immediately I recognized him.  He glanced at me, raised an eyebrow, and kept walking.  My prof said we should go ask him if he was in fact Mark Gatiss, but I said no.  That seems so intrusive, and he was obviously doing errands.
