Several formulas can approximate the gamma function on the complex domain, but all of them have issues. Please, look at its plot before starting. Nonetheless, there is a trick that makes them all work; and you must find it (I've lost some time trying different formulas, adding more terms, but it is not the way to go).
I've found a 1968-paper by Wrench, Concerning Two Series for the Gamma Function, which gives us the 20th first terms of one formula for instance. https://www.ams.org/journals/mcom/1968-22-103/S0025-5718-1968-0237078-4/ (It would be more than enough if there weren't issues with all approximations.)
A clever and simple approach to deal with the pitfalls in the test suite. It can be easily extended to deal with other problematic values of the argument.
