Son of The Doctor Moves to Gotham

Sean-PertweeSean Pertwee, son of Doctor Who‘s third Doctor, Jon Pertwee, has been cast as Alfred in Fox’s Smallville-like Batman prequel series, Gotham.

The series follows the adventures of a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as he fights Gotham’s colourful gallery of criminals without the help of the Dark Knight.  You have to wonder what role Alfred will play in such a series (Bruce is supposed to be a child when as the series starts).  Is Gordon going to spend an inordinate amount of time at Wayne Manor, or was Alfred a secret crime fighter in his pre-butler days?
