Well, I really still miss Dr. House – I still feel that was his most impressive venture. It was such an original character. But Hugh has shown us he is an actor capable of playing other types as well. Die hard fan that I am, I have watched him in the Night Manager as a villain – Chance as a psychiatrist – and Veep as a politician – screwy politician. And if you look back at his early career with his side kick – Stephen Fry – numerous other manifestations of character and inscrutable timing.

Road Kill is pretty good – but I have only seen the first two episodes so far. It really beats the recent foray into outer space – I’m sorry but that wasn’t up to my expectations. Road Kill is serious and straight forward and shows another side of Mr. Laurie’s persona. I feel certain, however, that Road Kill will grow on me. Good writing, fine acting all around.
