Oh, I feel exactly the same! Oddly proud of someone I've met only in 2 minute intervals many years ago. Weirdest moment was when Stewart and I went to see his MR James thing at the BFI, and it was nearly sold out... and yet we really easily got tickets for a Dario Argento thing. I had a moment of shock: 'Gatiss is bigger than Dario Argento?!?'
