A bout of Fry v Laurie

On Sunday two of Britain's national treasures, whose surnames have been entwined in the public consciousness since their comedy show A Bit of Fry and Laurie first aired on BBC Two in 1988, compete for our affections. At 9pm, you can see Stephen Fry as a Norfolk solicitor in Kingdom. Meanwhile at the same time on Sky 1, you could watch House, starring Hugh Laurie as a medical genius. It's time to decide who is better - Fry or Laurie?
