Batman’s Butler Died.

Tis is with heavy heart and raised mug of grog that we recognise the passing of a legend.

Actor Michael Gough will probably be best remembered for his role as Batman’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, who portrayed a man who willingly suffered the frustrations and pains of running hand and foot after a spoilt, spandex wearing millionaire.

A favourite of film director Tim Burton he went on to star in Sleepy Hollow and lend his voice acting skills to the Corpse Bride and more recently Alice In Wonderland.
