hevc file bigger than x264

Hello, my nas is strugling with space, so I needed to convert some of my files on hevc. I know it's not the best thing to do but still...
I'm using handbrake (v1.3.3), Qc 18, medium, h265 10 bit.
Everything is usually fine the output file is usually smaller up to 50%, usually around 30%, but there is one episode of house m.d. which has scenes in both bw and color during all the episode, this file no matter what it comes out bigger than the x264 file.
I also tried to reduce the bitrate of about 20% compared to the h264 file, use the 2 pass encoding but still it's insanely big.

Any suggestion about which settings can I use?
