Someone pointed out to me the other day interesting character similarities between House and Wilson and Holmes and Watson (Sherlok Holmes novels). If you think about it, its hard to believe I didn't see it before. The eccentric, loner with very antisocial qualities but a brilliant mind with the best friend who keeps by his side and acts kind of like a concience.
Who else sees the similarity? Do you think the writers deliberately based them on them or is it just a coincidence. You have to admit, even their names seem the same. House, Holmes, Wilson, Watson. Freaky, huh?
