Sherlock Holmes will be returning to our TV screens despite jumping to his death from the top of a London building, and now it seems his arch-foe could reappear again as well, despite bumping himself off in more violent fashion at the end of the last series.
Andrew Scott, now freshly furnished with a BAFTA TV Award for his portrayal of the big-brained Moriarty in the two series thus far on screen, told the Radio Times that "it's very hard for him to come back. But nothing is impossible."
Asked what the best thing about working on the hit TV series was, Scott was quick to praise his leading man - "One of the best things about working on Sherlock was acting with Benedict. He's a really cool guy."
And he was full of good words about the series creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, who received a BAFTA TV Special Award for his scripts on programmes from Press Gang through to his current hits Sherlock and Doctor Who - "I don't think it would have worked if they hadn't been such big enthusiasts."
Stars turn out for BAFTA...
