One of the better shows on right now.. But for how much longer?

TO find fame and fortune in America Hugh Laurie had to adopt a trademark limp for the role of Dr Gregory House.

But that realistic limp could force him out of the TV series that earns him £250,000 an episode because of the pain of contorting his body.

“The show might last to series seven, eight or nine but I don’t know if I will,” he said last night, “because I’m starting to lose my knees a little bit.

“It’s a lot of hip work. There’s things going badly wrong. I need to do yoga.”
