For ''Doctor Who'', Gatiss writes it so the Doctor usually cannot gain a complete victory or someone else has to step in to save the day. For the former, ''[[Victory of the Daleks (TV story)|Victory of the Daleks]] ''has the Daleks escape to rebuild their race, but the Doctor save the Earth from a bomb. With the latter, it tends to fall to the companions or a one-off character.

In terms of televised ''Doctor Who'', {{as of|2018|lc=y}}, Gatiss has contributed nine scripts and made four guest appearances since the series' revival, and been a narrator and a subject of ''[[Doctor Who Confidential]]''. Although other writers had enjoyed small roles in the 1963 version of ''Doctor Who'', he was the first to have not just one, but two large speaking roles — Professor [[Richard Lazarus]], the titular villain of ''[[The Lazarus Experiment (TV story)|The Lazarus Experiment]]'', and "[[Archibald Hamish Lethbridge-Stewart|the Captain]]" in ''[[Twice Upon a Time (TV story)|Twice Upon a Time]]''. During Steven Moffat's time as showrunner, Gatiss was the only writer other than Moffat himself to write a script for every season.

He has had some form of professional or semi-professional contact with every actor to have played [[the Doctor]] except [[William Hartnell]] and [[Patrick Troughton]]. [[David Tennant]] is his most common acting partner amongst people who've played the Doctor. They've been on screen together on several occasions — most prominently in {{wi|The Quatermass Experiment (2005)|The Quatermass Experiment}} and the episode "Drop Dead" of {{wi|Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) (2000 TV series)|Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)}}, which also featured [[Jessica Hynes]]. He's also been alongside Tennant in {{wi|Bright Young Things}}, which also co-starred [[Fenella Woolgar]], [[Stephen Fry]], [[Bill Paterson]], [[Richard E Grant]], and [[Jim Broadbent]]; and the English-language cast of the Norwegian animated adventure {{wi|Free Jimmy}}, with [[Simon Pegg]], [[Jim Broadbent]] and [[Steve Pemberton]]. He and [[Tom Baker]] have occasionally crossed paths, through their mutual connection to [[Matt Lucas]]. Gatiss [[script editor|script edited]] several episodes of {{wi|Little Britain}}, on which Baker was the regular narrator, and fellow ''Doctor Who Confidential'' narrator, [[Anthony Head]], played a leading role. Later, he and Baker both appeared as actors in Lucas' {{wi|The Wind in the Willows (2006 film)|The Wind in the Willows}}. [[Christopher Eccleston]] once appeared on an episode of Gatiss' show, {{wi|The League of Gentlemen}}. He and [[Peter Davison]] were in several BBV productions at the start of Gatiss' career, but following that, as of 2017, they have only acted together in the [[Big Finish Productions]] audio story ''[[Phantasmagoria (audio story)|Phantasmagoria]]''. By virtue of his participation in ''[[The Zero Imperative (home video)|The Zero Imperative]]'', he's acted on-screen alongside [[Caroline John]], [[Jon Pertwee]], [[Sylvester McCoy]], [[Colin Baker]], [[Louise Jameson]], and [[Sophie Aldred]].
