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…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
