== Series overview ==
{{seealso|List of House episodes}}
[[Gregory House]], [[Doctor of Medicine|M.D.]], is an antisocial medical genius who heads a team of [[Medical diagnosis|diagnosticians]] at the Princeton-Plainsboro [[Teaching hospital|Teaching Hospital]] in [[New Jersey]]. Most episodes start with a [[cold open]], or ''[[in medias res]]'', somewhere outside the hospital, showing the events leading to the onset of symptoms for that episode's main patient. The episode follows the team in their attempts to diagnose and treat the patient's illness but most of the time they do not succeed until the patient is critical.
 
House's world-renowned department typically only sees patients who have failed to receive a correct diagnosis, making the patient cases complex. Furthermore, House resists cases that he does not find interesting. The medical cases featured are often rare but realistic, and described by Andrew Holtz, the author of ''The Medical Science of House, M.D.'', as "a conglomeration of all the worst things that can happen to people from all over the world, crammed into one little community."<ref>{{cite video|title=Final Cut Fox 12 - Stories Behind House|url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVWjtFbtBds|publisher=[[Fox News Channel]]|medium=Television production|format=Flash Video (.flv)|accessdate=2008-05-27}}{{copyvio link|November 2008}}</ref>
 
The team arrives at diagnoses using [[differential diagnosis]],<ref>{{cite web|title=What is Differential Diagnosis?|url=http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-differential-diagnosis.htm|last=Smith|first=S.E.|publisher=wiseGEEK|accessdate=2008-09-27}}</ref> with House guiding the deliberations. House often discounts and challenges the opinions of his team, pointing out that their contributions have missed various relevant factors. The patient is usually [[Medical error|misdiagnosed]] over the course of the episode and treated with medications appropriate to the misdiagnoses. This usually causes further [[Complication (medicine)|complications]] in the patient, but in turn helps lead House and his team to the correct diagnosis by using the new symptoms.
 
Often the ailment cannot be easily deduced because the patient has lied about symptoms and circumstances. House frequently mutters, "Everybody lies", or proclaims during the team's deliberations: "The patient is lying", or "The symptoms never lie." Even when not stated explicitly, this assumption guides House's decisions and diagnoses.<ref>{{cite news|url=http://firefox.org/news/articles/1127/1/Review-House-MD--quotIt039s-a-Wonderful-Liequot/Page1.html|title=Review: House MD - "It's a Wonderful Lie"|first=Mara|last=Greengrass|date=2008-01-30|publisher=[[Firefox|Firefox News]]|accessdate=2008-09-27}}</ref>
 
Because House's theories about a patient's illness tend to be based on subtle or controversial insights, he often has trouble obtaining permission from his boss, hospital [[Administration (business)|administrator]] Dr. [[Lisa Cuddy]], to perform medical procedures he thinks are necessary, especially when the procedures themselves involve a high degree of risk or are [[Medical ethics|ethically]] dubious.<ref>{{cite web|title=Doing the Right Thing: The Ethics of Dr. Gregory House, Part I|url=http://blogcritics.org/archives/2008/08/01/103300.php|last=Barnett|first=Barbara|date=2008-08-01|work=Blogcritics Magazine|publisher=Blogcritics.org|accessdate=2008-09-27}}</ref>
 
Cuddy also requires House to spend time treating patients in the hospital's [[Convenient care clinic|walk-in clinic]] so that the interactions will improve his bedside manner. House's grudging fulfillment of this duty or creative methods of avoiding it is a recurring subplot on the show. During clinic duty, House confounds patients with unwelcome insights into their personal lives, eccentric prescriptions and unorthodox treatments, but impresses them with rapid and accurate diagnoses after seemingly not paying attention. Realizations made during some of the simple problems House faces in the clinic often help him solve the main case.
 
Episodes frequently feature the practice of entering a patient's house with or without the owner's permission in order to search for clues that might suggest a certain [[pathology]]. The creator, David Shore, originally intended for the show to be a ''[[CSI: Crime Scene Investigation|CSI]]''-type show where the "germs were the suspects,"<ref name="macleans">{{cite web|last=Frum|first=Linda|title=Q&A with 'House' creator David Shore|work=Macleans.ca|publisher=Rogers Publishing|date=2006-03-14|url=http://www.macleans.ca/culture/entertainment/article.jsp?content=20060320_123370_123370|accessdate=2007-01-02}}</ref> but has since shifted much of the focus to the characters rather than concentrating solely on the environment.<ref name="macleans" />
 
Another large portion of the plot centers on House's abuse of [[Vicodin]] to manage pain stemming from an [[infarction]] in his [[Quadriceps femoris muscle|quadriceps muscle]] some years earlier, an injury that forces him to walk with a cane. House admits he is addicted to Vicodin, but says he does not have a problem because, "[The pills] let me do my job, and they take away my pain."{{Ref label|B|b|none}} His addiction has led two of his colleagues, doctors [[James Wilson (House)|James Wilson]] and Lisa Cuddy, to encourage him to go to [[drug rehabilitation]] several times, but no attempts have successfully gotten House off the drug. Sometimes when House does not have access to Vicodin, or when he perceives the Vicodin alone is not enough to relieve his pain, he [[Self-medication|self-medicates]] with other [[narcotic]] pain relievers such as [[oxycodone]] and [[morphine]].<ref>{{cite news|url=http://holmes.spontaneousderivation.com/2008/05/31/a-house-md-and-sherlock-holmes-special-predicting-house-season-five-based-on-the-sherlock-holmes-canon/|title=A House, MD and Sherlock Holmes Special: Predicting House Season Five Based On the Sherlock Holmes Canon|first=Arachne|last=Jericho|date=2008-05-31|publisher=Holmesian Derivations, ''A 21st century look at Sherlock Holmes.''|accessdate=2008-09-27}}</ref>
 
House is in many respects a medical [[Sherlock Holmes]]. (Holmes himself was inspired by real-life physician Dr. [[Joseph Bell]], according to Sir Arthur [[Conan Doyle]], Holmes's creator, who was a doctor as well.) This resemblance is evident in various elements of the series' plot, such as House's reliance on [[psychology]] to solve a case, his reluctance to accept cases he does not find interesting, his home address (apartment 221B, the same number as [[221B Baker Street|Holmes' home]]),<ref>{{cite online journal|last=Jensen|first=Jeff|year=2007|month=April|title=Full 'House'|journal=[[Entertainment Weekly]]|volume=928|url=http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20016394,00.html|accessdate=2008-09-26}}</ref> playing of an instrument, [[Sherlock Holmes#The use of drugs|addiction to opiates]], relationship with Dr. James Wilson (who parallels Dr. [[John Watson (Sherlock Holmes)#Cultural references|John Watson]]),<ref>{{cite web|url=http://tv.zap2it.com/tveditorial/tve_main/1,1002,271%7C92770%7C1%7C,00.html|title=Building 'House' Is Hard Work|last=O'Hare|first=Kate|date=2005-01-05|work=Zap2it|publisher=Tribune Media Services, Inc.|accessdate=2008-05-27}}</ref> and his encounter with a crazed gunman credited as "[[Professor Moriarty|Moriarty]]", which is the same name as Holmes' nemesis.<ref>{{cite web|last=Kristine|first=Diane|date=2006-05-24|title=TV Review: ''House'' Season Finale - "No Reason"|work=Blogcritics Magazine|publisher=Blogcritics.org|url=http://blogcritics.org/archives/2006/05/24/011244.php|accessdate=2008-09-26}}</ref> Also, series creator David Shore has said that Dr. House's name is meant as "a subtle homage" to Sherlock Holmes (i.e., homes).<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.radiotimes.com/content/show-features/house/house-and-holmes-parallels/|title=House and Holmes parallels|month=January|year=2006|work=Radio Times|publisher=BBC Magazines Ltd.|accessdate=2008-05-27}}</ref> In the season four episode "[[It's a Wonderful Lie (House)|It's a Wonderful Lie]]", House received a "second edition [[Arthur Conan Doyle|Conan Doyle]]" as a Christmas gift.<ref>{{cite episode |title=It's a Wonderful Lie |episodelink=It's a Wonderful Lie (House) |series=House |credits=[[David Shore|Shore, David]]; Davis, Pam |network=[[FOX Broadcasting Company|FOX]] |airdate=2008-01-29 |season=4 |number=10}}</ref>
 
== पात्र ==
{{main|हाउस के पात्रौं के सूची}}
[[चित्र:HouseSeason5Cast.jpg|thumb|right|350px|The main characters of season five of ''House'', left to right: Wilson, "Thirteen", Chase, Kutner, House, Foreman, Cuddy, Cameron, Taub]]
During the first three seasons, House's Department of Diagnostic Medicine consists<!--NOT "consisted" because of literary present tense--> of three other doctors: [[Eric Foreman]], [[Allison Cameron (House)|Allison Cameron]], and [[Robert Chase]]. At the end of the third season, Foreman announces his resignation, telling House, "I don't want to turn into you."{{Ref label|C|c|none}} Soon after, in the [[Human Error (House)|season three finale]], House fires Chase saying that he has either learned everything he can, or he has not learned anything at all. Cameron subsequently resigns, having developed a soft spot for Chase. This leaves House without a team for the [[Alone (House)|season four premiere]].
 
At the end of the fourth season premiere, House considers forty new doctors for the Department of Diagnostic Medicine. Early episodes of season four focus on cases that House uses to narrow the forty applicants down to three new employees. He makes a [[Reality television|reality TV]]-style game out of it using diagnostic cases as contests and eventually eliminates thirty-seven of them, hiring [[Chris Taub]], [[Lawrence Kutner (House)|Lawrence Kutner]], and Remy "[[Thirteen (House)|Thirteen]]" Hadley as his new team members.<ref>{{cite web|title=House, M.D.: Season Four|url=http://hometheaterinfo.com/house,_m_d__season_four.htm|publisher=Home Theater Info|accessdate=2008-09-27}}</ref> Dr. Foreman rejoins the team after getting fired from a new job at a different hospital. Cuddy rehires Foreman at the same salary after she determines he won't be able to get a job anywhere else because he has become too much like House. Chase and Cameron are still employed at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital in different departments although Wilson and Cuddy briefly attempt to convince House otherwise.

=== Casting ===
The producers were reportedly dissatisfied with early auditions for the role of [[Gregory House]]. When [[Hugh Laurie]] auditioned, he apologized for his appearance as he was filming ''[[Flight of the Phoenix (2004 film)|Flight of the Phoenix]] '' at the time.<ref name="Casting"> ''Casting Session with Hugh Laurie'' House DVD Special Feature, [2005]</ref> Laurie's [[American English|American accent]] was reportedly so flawless that [[Bryan Singer]] singled him out as an example of a real American actor, being unaware of Laurie's background.<ref>''[[Radio Times]]'' magazine, March 23, 2007</ref> Laurie later stated that his original impression was that the show was about Dr. [[James Wilson (House)|James Wilson]]. The script referred to Wilson as a doctor with "boyish" looks, and Laurie assumed that Wilson was the central character and that House was the "sidekick" (the show was not yet titled ''House'' at that point). It was not until he received the full teleplay of [[Pilot (House)|the pilot]] that he realized that House was the protagonist.<ref name="Inside"> ''Inside the Actor's Studio'' Hugh Laurie Interview, BRAVO Network, [2006]</ref> Laurie, whose father was a doctor himself, said he felt guilty for "being paid more to become a fake version of my own father" after being cast as House.<ref>{{cite news|last=Keveney|first=Bill|url=http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2004-11-15-hugh-laurie_x.htm|title=Hugh Laurie gets into 'House'|work=[[USA Today]]|publisher=Gannett Co.

=== Theme music ===
In [[North America]] (and some countries elsewhere) the opening theme of the series is "[[Teardrop (song)|Teardrop]]" by [[Massive Attack]].<ref>{{cite news|url=http://www.tvsquad.com/2006/05/05/teardrops-fall-on-house-and-prison-break/|title=Teardrops fall on House and Prison Break|first=Adam|last=Finley|date=2006-05-05|publisher=''[[TV Squad]]''|accessdate=2008-09-26}}</ref> "Teardrop" has lyrics, sung by guest vocalist [[Elizabeth Fraser]] of [[Cocteau Twins]];<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.last.fm/music/Massive+Attack/_/Teardrop|title=Teardrop; About this track|publisher=[[Last.fm]]|accessdate=2008-09-26}}</ref> however, the version used in the opening credits uses only the beginning and ending sections, which are solely instrumental.<ref name="InfoNu" />
 
Due to rights and licensing issues, in most countries a piece of music named "House End Credits" is used, which was composed specifically for the show by Jon Ehrlich, Jason Derlatka, and Leigh Roberts.<ref name="InfoNu">{{cite web|url=http://muziek-en-film.infonu.nl/televisie/20500-house-md-tv-serie.html|title=House M.D. (tv-serie)|work=Muziek|publisher=InfoNu.nl|language=Dutch|accessdate=2008-09-26}}</ref> The satirical [[United Kingdom|British]] television show ''[[Dead Ringers (comedy)|Dead Ringers]]'', which sometimes spoofs ''House'', uses "Teardrop" for the spoof's opening theme.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBda4wfFlp0|title=Dead Ringers House MD Parody (Czech subtitles)|publisher=[[YouTube]]|accessdate=2008-09-26}}</ref> "Teardrop" is also used in the season 2 region 2 and region 4 release, replacing the "House" theme at the beginning of the episode.
 
In the fourth-season finale, an acoustic version of "Teardrop" performed by [[José González]] (with lyrics) is heard during the episode as part of the background music.<ref name="InfoNu" /> It was recorded at the famous Taylstev recording studio on personal request from Fox.

=== Filming ===
[[चित्र:Princeton Frist Campus Center back.jpg|thumb|right|200px|The back entrance of Frist Campus Center]]
''House'' episodes often use the "[[walk and talk]]" [[Cinematic techniques|filming technique]] (also called "pedeconferencing") made popular by [[Aaron Sorkin]] and [[Thomas Schlamme]] in television series such as ''[[Sports Night]]'' and ''[[The West Wing]]''.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://blogcritics.org/archives/2005/09/02/001342.php|title=Review: ''House, M.D.'' Season 1 DVD|last=Kristine|first=Diane|work=Blogcritics Magazine|publisher=Blogcritics.org|date=2005-09-02|accessdate=2008-05-27}} (Quote on page 4: "The gorgeous wood and glass sets must be a pain to shoot properly, and walk-and-talk shots are a signature, but otherwise the direction tends to the clean and simple.")</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.twiztv.com/scripts/house/season3/house-319.htm|title=Transcript of House, M.D. 3X19 - Act Your Age|last=Hess|first=Sara|date=2007-04-17|work=Twiz TV.com|publisher=Polterghost Entertainment|accessdate=2008-05-27}} (At a little less than halfway, the transcript says, "Cue walk and talk.")</ref> The technique consists of [[Tracking shot|tracking]] two or more characters backwards as they walk from one location to another, usually discussing the topic of the meeting they are heading to, or in this show's case, the patient's condition, test results, and diagnosis.
 
This was referred to jokingly in the season four episode "[[Ugly (House)|Ugly]]", in which a documentary crew follows Dr. House and his team throughout the episode. At one point House starts walking with his team and the camera crew follows, shooting in the "walk and talk" style. As House and his team are walking away, Dr. Foreman asks where they are going. House responds: "Walks look good on camera. They give the illusion of the story moving forward."<ref name="Ugly">{{cite episode | title = Ugly | episodelink =Ugly (House)| series = House | airdate = 2007-11-13| season = 4| number = 7|accessdate=2008-09-26}}</ref>

Instead, it takes place on the [[Fox Broadcasting Company|FOX]] lot in [[Century City, Los Angeles, California|Century City]].<ref>{{cite web|title=Behind The Scenes At "House"|url=http://www.etonline.com/tv/2006/01/35979/index.html|work=ETonline.com|publisher=CBS Studios Inc.|date=2006-01-29|accessdate=2008-05-25}}</ref>
