RIP, MICHAEL GOUGH: Actor who played “Batman” butler dies at 94

He graced “Doctor Who.” He toured with the Royal Shakespeare Company and played Broadway. But mostly, to the world, he was the incomparable Alfred Pennyworth, butler to Bruce Wayne, in the “Batman” film franchise.

RIP, Michael Gough. May the lights of stage and screen go dark to mark not only your death, but also your illuminating presence and eternal life on screen.
