The story of Holmes’ mortal enemy Moriarty isn’t over by a long shot it seems…
At the end of Series 3 of Sherlock the long thought dead Moriarty seemingly reappears with the words “Miss me?”, but is he alive or is this some elaborate Moriarty shenanigans?
The character, played by Irish actor Andrew Scott, was a very different take on Moriarty and ran hot and cold with fans, but his mark was forever felt in the show and his return is certainly tantalising.
Well, the Sherlock special, which is in pre-production and will film in January, will, according to co-creator Mark Gatiss, completely wrap up the mystery of Moriarty’s suicide and apparent resurrection.
Gatiss, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Scott and Martin Freeman are all expected to return to the show which may – or may not – air next Christmas.
When asked if it will be the end of Moriarty, Gatiss simply said: “Well, it’s very hard to put a lid on Andrew Scott…”
Whatever happens, there’s more to be told…
