Why not, indeed?
During our Season 2 coverage of Sherlock, Leslie Gilbert Elman blogged that “Andrew Scott as Moriarty is just beautiful.” We’d agree. As captivating as a cobra.
In this updated reboot, Moriarty is less professorial mathmetician than actor. Dublin’s Andrew Scott is also an actor. Coincidence or fiendish design?
Well, despite general acclaim, he’s the only actor from the series to have won the 2012 BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor in a television series from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. While Martin Freeman curses, you make the call.
