The Eyes Might Have it

I rather like the character Dr. Cal Lightman played by Tim Roth in the TV series Lie To Me.  The ever fluid Roth, as Dr. Lightman, reminds me of a composite of the Johnny Depp pirate character Jack Sparrow, of Sherlock Holmes and, well, of Bugs Bunny. I like the fact that Dr. Lightman takes on bullies (she said with a micro-expression of glee).

It’s elementary, then. I much prefer the Dr. Lightman character to another Holmesian based character, Dr. Gregory House, played by Hugh Laurie. Both men are fine actors.
