House is Sherlock Holmes.



Yep, House -> Holmes; Wilson -> Watson.


Cocaine -> Vicodin


Holmes was also quite into opiates himself - I seem to remember a Persian slipper that housed his heroin stash, and some incidents of opium smoking.


wouldn't that be Holmes -> House?


Sherlock Holmes has been around since around 1891; predating Gregory House by about 113 years.


Right so House is later than the Holmes.
