    • The Doctor: You're the clever one, you're Moriarty.
      Referencing the fictional nemesis of Sherlock Holmes, first appearing in order of publication in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Final Problem" (Strand Magazine, 1893). Although Holmes describes Moriarty as the "Napoleon of Crime" and spent months battling him, Moriarty only appears in one other Holmes story, The Valley of Fear, and is mentioned in passing in several others. Despite that, he is widely used in hundreds of derivative fictions and adaptations.
