Any ideas on this caterpillar?

Found this caterpillar today, really like the olive and black pattern on the eyes! Stunning. Haven't managed to ID it yet so I'm back on here. It looks a little like a Barberry carpet but the eyes are too different. The lumpy wartiness and colouring have the same feel though. Might it be a related species? I'm presuming it's a moth... as far as I know, only the Spotted wood butterfly overwinters as a larva. Then again, it could be a fly larva. Hmmm. Anyway, any thoughts are much appreciated.
