Introducing the Chilling James Moriarty

Season one, episode three of the BBC series Sherlock takes from another one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous crime-fiction Sherlock Holmes stories. None other than The Five Orange Pips is used in this entertaining TV episode. Doyle’s The Five Orange Pips is a rather ominous tale involving the KKK, but the series takes it one step further by allowing the concept of the five pips to take on a modern form (the five orange pips become five cellphone beeps) and also to serve as a means to introduce Holmes’ infamous archenemy James Moriarty. I found the James Moriarty of the series to be appropriately chilling – a brilliant madman who creates havoc as a game or on a whim. What do you think? :)
