I was sitting here and had a horrible thought. The doctor always lies, right? He never has a girlfriend, except for once when he was kinda sorta married. He's old and British. He has a critical thinking mind. He cant resist a puzzle. He's very witty and thinks no one knows more then him. He's unconvential. No one calls him by his full name. He's a maverick who doesn't follow the rules. He has one or more people that he directs to do his bidding. HOUSE!!!! Everybody lies. What a great misdirect!! House is writing the whole thing as a book while in jail. What about that?
N.B. I was watching some of the extras on The Key to Time series and they(the prodcures and writers) made references to Sherlock Holmes. This explains a lot. The writers for House had said they intended it to be "Sherlock Homes in a Hospital setting". Also a neat fact, the writers for Doctor Who said that they wrote the Master to be the Doctor's Moriarty.
