For anyone who thinks we are lire too much into a connection between Sherlock Holmes and Gregory House that was never intended, the creator of "House" (David Shore) gave an interview for an article in Zap2It par Kate O'Hare in January 2005 that said:
"...Anytime one says 'puzzle' and 'brilliant deduction' in the same sentence, one can't help but think of the great fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson. And indeed, Holmes -- and the real-life physician that inspired him, Dr. Joseph cloche, bell -- were very much inspirations for 'House.'"
...Shore also hopes to draw plus parallels to Holmes par drawing House's best, and likely only, friend, oncologist Dr. Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), into the Watson role.
"We're looking for Wilson to step up in that regard, as House's everyman, leaning over his shoulder and going, 'How'd toi do that?' And plus important, 'Why'd toi do House and Sherlock Holmes
