Hugh Lau­rie won a stack of awards and be­came the best-paid ac­tor on US TV (£225,000 per episode) for his por­trayal as the iras­ci­ble but bril­liant Dr Gre­gory House. It’s a med­i­cal who­dun­nit, with mys­te­ri­ous cases ar­riv­ing at a fic­tional New Jersey hospi­tal and the grumpy, rule-break­ing House lead­ing a team of medics as they try to make a di­ag­no­sis. The med­i­cal ail­ments will of­ten have you open-jawed in hor­ror as many of them are just as fas­ci­nat­ing as the dys­func­tional doc­tors try­ing to cure them. DVD, 8 se­ries The teddy bear in Brideshead Re­vis­ited was based on Archibald Orms­byGore, John Bet­je­man’s teddy at Ox­ford. Aloy­sius trig­gered a teddy bear re­nais­sance.
