Playground Entertainment (“Little Women,” ‘Howards End”) is planning a long-form series adaptation of British film critic Kim Newman’s 2011 novel “Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles”.
The short story deals with the memoirs of Colonel Sebastian Moran, the trusted lieutenant of Sherlock Holmes’ nemesis Professor Moriarty. Essentially playing like a dark mirror of Holmes, the story follows the fiercely intelligent criminal mastermind and his debauched and violent aide who run crime in London.
Newman also penned the acclaimed novel “Anno Dracula” and “Doctor Who” novella “Time and Relative”. No further details available.
