He’s one of the most gifted on-screen characters in media outlets today and one of the brains behind a portion of your preferred shows including Sherlock and, all the more as of late, Dracula. So I surmise a ton of single fans out there likely could be pondering, is Mark Gatiss hitched?
All things considered, I’m sorry to disillusion, however don’t attempt it as Gatiss is hitched to individual entertainer Ian Hallard. The pair went into a common organization in 2008 and, following the legitimization of gay marriage in the UK, they chose to get hitched in 2018. Talking on the Attitude web recording at the time, Gatiss kidded: “We’re updating one year from now for our, f*cking heck, tenth commemoration. It’s simply because the seating is better and we get free white wine.” However on an increasingly genuine note, is Mark Gatiss married?
Well, I’m very sorry to disappoint, but don’t even try it as Gatiss is married to fellow actor Ian Hallard. The pair entered into a civil partnership in 2008 and, following the legalisation of gay marriage in the UK, they decided to get married in 2018. Speaking on the Attitude podcast at the time, Gatiss joked: “We’re upgrading next year for our, f*cking hell, 10th anniversary. It’s only because the seating is better and we get free white wine.” However on a more serious note, he added, “I mean, we were doing it for the anniversary because we can. But it’s equality, isn’t it?”
Speaking to the Guardian in 2017, the pair revealed that they actually met online, which is super normal now but not as much when they did it in 2000. So much so that they actually kept it a secret for a while. “There was a genuine stigma in those days,” Gatiss told the newspaper, “which has completely vanished now. We didn’t tell our families — I said we’d met at a party or something like that, because it was still a bit odd.”

Hallard works as an actor and the couple have also worked on scripts together (including one for Doctor Who). And, according to the Guardian, Hallard is the unofficial script editor on all of Gatiss’ work. So I guess we have him to thank in part for the BBC’s latest hit show, Dracula. And if he had anything at all to do with Sister Agatha, we are eternally grateful.
