45 points: Szabs & Gatsby Good work!

Other results:
Close behind them
40 points: Nakarinna, Deputygary & Maninmidohio
And close behind them
35 points: Srini, Mugaboo & Denni

Now as to how all the bits make up a whole…I’ve gone through the clues and have decided that they were way too-oooo obscure. Only one person attempted a guess (good effort Deputygary ), and the answer is ……. “Dr. Gregory House” of “House M.D.”. His ‘best-est’ friend is “James Wilson M.D.” who is left-handed, he is seen playing the piano on a number of episodes, Dave Matthews played the part of a pianist savant on an episode in the series (and I thought that he did a very good job of it), the New Yankee Workshop is one of the shows that the doctor has on his TIVO list, and all the answers in question 5 are pretty good descriptions of him. There you go. Wishing everyone a relaxing fun-filled Sunday.
