Gregory House, M.D., is a fictional antihero[1] of the American medical drama House. Portrayed by Hugh Laurie, the character is a medical genius; a diagnostician with specializations in infectious diseases and nephrology. He works as the Chief of Diagnostic Medicine at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, and there heads a team of diagnosticians. House's character has been described as a "misanthrope", a "cynic", a narcissist and a "curmudgeon".

In the series, the character's unorthodox diagnostic approaches, radical therapeutic motives, and stalwart rationality have resulted in much conflict between him and his colleagues.[2] House is also often portrayed as lacking sympathy for his patients, a practice that allots him the time to solve pathological enigmas. The character is partly inspired by Sherlock Holmes.[3][4]

A portion of the show's plot centers on House's habitual use of Vicodin to manage pain stemming from a leg infarction involving his quadriceps muscle some years earlier, an injury that forces him to walk with a cane. This addiction is also one of the many parallels to Sherlock Holmes, who was addicted to opium.[5]

Throughout the series' run, the character has received positive reviews.[6][7] Tom Shales of The Washington Post called House "the most electrifying character to hit television in years".[8] In 2008, Gregory House was voted second sexiest TV doctor ever, behind Dr. Doug Ross (George Clooney) from ER.[9] For his portrayal of Gregory House, Hugh Laurie has won various awards, including two Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Television Drama Series and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor from Drama Series.[10] Laurie also earned Primetime Emmy Award nominations in 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010.[11][12][13] TV Overmind has named Gregory House the best TV character of the last decade.[14] In making a list of the 100 greatest television characters, TV Guide selected Gregory House as the greatest of all time.[citation needed]
