House

9:30pm – Sunday, April 15 on TV 3

This week’s unmissable House shines a light on perhaps the most crucial question of the series – do Dr. House’s life-preserving ends justify his usually outlandish means? House continues its latest season on Sunday, April 15 th at 9:30pm on 3.

For eight seasons, Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) has been able to pull almost any stunt he pleased at Princeton-Plainsboro, simply because he’s a brilliant diagnostician who saves lives. But in this week’s instalment, titled “Nobody’s Fault”, House’s methods end in a catastrophe that threatens one of his team member’s future at the hospital. Enter Dr. Walter Cofield (guest star Jeffrey Wright), the head of neurology at a nearby hospital and a former mentor to Dr. Foreman (Omar Epps) – and the man who will determine whether House or his team are to blame for the accident.

“Jeffrey’s [Wright] character really decides the fate of the series – he puts House’s process on trial,” director and executive producer Greg Yaitanes explains. “These are questions we’ve never really asked of the series before, one of which is: What is the responsibility of everybody in an environment of recklessness?”

But why start questioning House now? “It takes this many episodes of the show to make an episode like this truly relevant,” Yaitanes says. “You almost had to get [viewers] to a place where they all were kind of on the same page. You essentially get everybody on board with the way House conducts business and then pull the rug out from them and… say, ‘Have I participated in the events that took place because I’ve cheered House on?’ I think it’s so rare to see something in television that really turns the mirror back on yourself.”

Make sure not to miss this when House and the team are placed under review on Sunday, April 15 th at 9:30pm on 3.
