Sherlock: The Great Game by Mark Gatiss; dir. Paul McGuigan (BBC, 2010) A grim episode to round out Series One, its plot not obviously based on a particular Conan Doyle story. Moriarty (Andrew Scott) proves a revelation while Sherlock becomes less and less likeable—a smug, classist brainbox acting much as Sergeant Donovan cautioned.
42 Word Review: Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz
Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz (Orion, 2014) No Sherlock Holmes or Watson, just a cleverly subversive homage and a body on the slab at Reichenbach, both tagged ‘Moriarty.’ Therein lies the mystery, Horowitz leading as Inspector Athelney Jones investigates and Conan Doyle’s London plays host to the ultimate swindle.
