From Amazon.co.uk

The award-winning House simply gets better and better, as its third season again delivers entertainment to a consistently high standard. Powered by Hugh Laurie in the title role--and his performance is worthy of every plaudit it’s attracted--this is a medical mix of drama and highly sarcastic comedy, that’s proven to be a considerable commercial and critical success.

The thinking behind the show is simple. Laurie’s Dr House is as reluctant, snide and miserable a medical practitioner as you’re likely to find, although he happens to be a genius at solving the unsolvable cases. Along with his small team of doctors, each episode generally sees House as a medical mystery, with said team scrabbling to find the answers to devilishly complicated illnesses and diseases.

But House’s skill is its characters as well as its at-times ingenious plotlines. Hugh Laurie aside, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer and Jennifer Morrison are terrific as House’s long-suffering staff, while Robert Sean Leonard’s Dr Wilson and Lisa Edelstein’s Dr Cuddy are equally strong as his only friend and boss respectively.

The third season of House shakes things up quite a lot though. A good chunk of it, for instance, is concerned with Laurie’s Doctor coming under investigation from a detective who takes a dislike to House’s methods. Plus there’s also a superb episode set mid-flight, and plenty of character issues to deal with too. No plot spoilers here, though!

In short, House is, and remains a triumph, by turns funny, dramatic and moving. And Laurie, surely in the role of a lifetime, is simply brilliant. Series four can’t come quickly enough. --Simon Brew

5.0 out of 5 stars The best season so far 29 July 2007
By M. D. P. Meechan VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
House season 3 is by far the best, and riskiest, season of the impressive medical drama so far. Steadily increasing in popularity with each passing year, it is welcoming to see that the House writers didn't decide to 'rest on their laurels', but instead did unpredictable, surprising things to the main cast. On few popular dramas do we see the lead character jailed and facing prison, but then Dr. Gregory House is no ordinary, ten-a-penny drama character. This complex genius is made all the more engaging due to his fierce conflict with Tritter, a spiteful detective out to destroy House's life. Tritter, played superbly by David Morse, is a rare character on House: someone who is equal to the doctor, and who won't back down without a fight. This compelling vendetta, and House's uncertain future, dominates much of the first half of the season, and stands as one of the best sub-plots in the series history to date. As the season progresses, we see more screen time devoted to the relationships forming between the supporting characters. At least one of these relationships gives House much reason for consternation, and his antics during this period are amusing and at times juvenile. As for the season finale, it will be interesting to see if the writers have the courage to go ahead with the massive changes implemented in this episode. If they do, then this show will have earned its rightful recognition as the gutsiest show currently being made for television. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars House Is Just Amazing 10 Aug 2008
By Steven Stewart VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Season 1 got me hooked, Season 2 made me fall in love and Season 3 just made me giddy. If someone told me this show couldn't get better, I would be inclined to agree. At the end of Season 2, House was shot and he asked to be given Ketamine which would help fix his leg. Season 3 starts off with, what seems to be a completely new House, he's happy and he's walking without an aid and doing his job without Vicodin. This is cool, it shows us just how much the leg problems have affected House and his personality. It doesn't last, as within a few episodes he's back to using the Cane and popping pills every hour.

During mid season House also gains himself a Vogler-esque type enemy, only this time it's a cop, and it lands House in some serious trouble. He's constantly haunted by this cop who insists on making House's life a misery until he's behind bars. House just carries on as usual, so the cop known as Tritter starts on his friends, first off is Wilson. This is a big test for their friendship as Wilson's life is almost destroyed by Tritter, but he refuses to give him up. Can we say the same for the team? Even Chase? Watch it and find out, you wont be disappointed.

You know the greatest thing about this show across all seasons? It's not the witty one liners or the likable supporting cast or the complex Dr. House. It's that the show isn't cliché, it doesn't have a case and solve it every episode and then make out like everything's cool. It shows you that actually life isn't like that and not everybody pulls through the rare life threatening illness. Although House may solve most of the cases, a lot of the time it's too late or sacrifices have to be made by patient relatives in order to save the patients life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's in da House? 21 Sep 2010
Format:DVD
I agree that season 3 is the best series of House to date. The terminally obnoxious diagnostician ramps things up to 11 in his remorseless quest to alienate everyone in his life, while the cracks in his own inscrutable life begin to widen.
Hugh Laurie continues to astound and show hitherto unseen range in his portrayal, whilst the supporting cast complement his character perfectly. Hospital administrator the seriously gorgeous (Lisa) Cuddy struggles to contain House's gigantic ego, and he even makes a surprising new enemy, leading to a relentless vendetta that threatens to ruin his career as well as his life. As ever though the naive Wilson, ambitious Chase and lovestruck Cameron constantly shield House from himself, but as he gets evermore out of control, even these few steadfast supporters begin to show signs of fatigue.
Another excellent set of stories in a truly compelling series.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Show Of The Past Decade 15 Feb 2008
By Scottish Dave VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
It does what it says on the box - House M.D. series 3. All 24 episodes spread over 6 discs.

What a wonderful TV show. If you loved series 1 & 2 them you'll love this. The character of House is as brilliant as ever and steals the show. There are some episodes where you don't like the guy much but that all adds to his complex character. The other characters all get a chance to shine at various points throughout the series also.

Regarding bonus material, I found the 20 minute featurette on disc 6 the best (based on The Jerk episode). You get interviews with the main actors and that was really enough for me. Disc 5 has a series of short 3-5 minute features - bloopers, special effects etc. There's also an alternative ending and commentary episode. So a decent enough splattering of material.
