I'll say this for Gatiss: he doesn't piss me off. At his worst he can be staggeringly boring, but I've never felt the need to throw things at my screen when I'm watching him, which is a bit of a distinction on Who. Most of his episodes have at least a handful of ideas good enough to keep my interest. He manages genuine poignancy, genuine humor, and genuine horror in turns, so there does tend to be some real weight to what he writes, even if the plot and occasionally charaterization can leave something to be desired. His fondness for history and Classic Who don't really do anything for me, but I don't hold them against him.

My favorite episodes of his are Crimson Horror and Robot of Sherwood. Worst are Sleep No More and Empress of Mars.

Interesting note: Fear Her is the first episode of Who I ever saw. Admittedly, it did not make me a convert, though I seem to like it more than most people.
