I found this part particularly interesting:

 

Gatiss would seem perfectly placed for the role of Mandelson, known to enemies and friends alike as the “prince of darkness”. He drew inspiration from the politician credited with rebranding the Labour party for the part of Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock’s brother, who secretly runs the government in the hit series, once saying he imbued the character with “reptilian and Mandelsonian” qualities.

 

... having never heard that before -- presumably it's true?

Interesting.  It could be fun watching if we ever get it over here in the US.

Peter Mandelson was quite a political character - it will be very interesting to see how Mark plays him  :)
