Here are ten amazing similarities between Sherlock Holmes and the character of House from his eponymous TV series. The connection between the words ‘House’ and ‘Holmes’ should be quite obvious. Both House and Holmes are experts to whom cases are brought that are too difficult for others to solve. Both are drug addicts - Holmes with his cocaine and House with his Vicodin.
