He said: “People ask if it’s good to challenge the audience. Of course it f***ing is. Why would you not want to challenge your audience?

Gatiss added: “If you don’t want to be challenged, don’t watch it. It’s a complex and entertaining programme. Go and read a children’s book with hard pages if you don’t want to be challenged. We’re making the show we want to make. We don’t make it a certain way because fans are pressuring us.” (IANS)
