Five picks up on the House/Sherlock Holmes parallels

Glad to see someone eagle-eyed and literate at Five’s trailers department has spotted the more obvious Sherlock Holmes allusions in House, and is bigging them up in the trailers. I say eagle-eyed because they spotted that House lives at 221b – no, that wasn’t CGI. He really does live there – which wasn’t the easiest tribute to spot unless you’re watching closely.

But we’re still playing catch-up with the US and over the last couple of episodes, the Holmes allusions have been getting stronger. We’ve now seen Wilson move in with House and bring his housekeeper with him. So that’s House and Wilson living together at 221b. With a housekeeper. Hmm.

Incidentally, Holmes tributes are not the only kind of homages that House‘s production team makes. Keep your eyes open for House’s Tivo settings. You’ll notice he’s dead keen on Blackadder
