The much-loved Wayne family butler will be getting a little more attention in the next season of 'Gotham'.
Those who are curious about finding out a little more in regards to the Wayne family butler, Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) are in luck, as the actor who plays him has teased we'll be "indirectly" delving deeper into his backstory when 'Gotham' makes its return for a fourth season next month.

Though we've seen figures from Alfred's past come to the series in episodes already gone by, and Alfred has on more than one occasion been able to prove his expertise when it comes to fighting, thanks to his time spent in the military, there's still a lot to explore when it comes to the actually very mysterious character's past.

The actor is hoping for a "cinematic version" of 'Gotham' in the future.
Throughout three seasons, FOX series 'Gotham' has told the origin tales of some of the most recognisable names and figures in the DC Universe. Whether you're catching up with the young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), the crafty criminal Penguin (Robin Taylor) or even Bruce's brilliant butler Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), the show has managed to impress viewers for many episodes, and a fourth season has now already been ordered.

The show came in a time when superhero series seemed to be taking over television, with the FOX network wanting a slice of the pie. Bringing some big names on board, including showrunner Bruno Heller meant that FOX were able to do something really special, and were seemingly allowed access to as many figures from DC as they wanted.

The cast and crew of Fox's superhero series 'Gotham' were snapped on their arrival at the New York Public Library; among them was Sean Pertwee, who plays Bruce Wayne's valet Alfred Pennyworth in the series. The series is a spin-off of the Batman stories, focusing on the Gotham police force.
David Mazouz will play Bruce Wayne in Fox's origins series 'Gotham'.
David Mazouz, 12, best known for playing the young lead opposite Kiefer Sutherland in 'Touch' is to play Bruce Wayne in Fox's Batman prequel 'Gotham'. Mazouz will play the iconic comic book character who will grow up to become the Caped Crusader himself. He was famously played by Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight triology.

Also cast in the new project is Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle - or Catwoman. In the new series, she will play a teenage orphan and a skilled street thief and pickpocket who is dangerous when cornered. As Deadline.com point out, it's impossible to ignore Bicondova's resemblance to Michelle Pfeiffer, the actress behind the most memorable Catwoman portrayal.

In bringing his iconic 1990s radio and TV character to the big screen, Coogan refreshingly refuses to play to American audiences: this film is purely British in its story, setting and characters. And as it gleefully redefines almost every action movie cliche imaginable, it's also one of the funniest films of the year. This is party due to the hilariously astute script, but also because Alan Partridge is both riotously embarrassing and utterly loveable.
As we meet him this time , Alan (Coogan) is trying to save his job at North Norfolk Digital when the radio station is bought by a corporation and turned in to Shape ("The way you want it to be"). In the process, Alan gets his colleague Pat (Meaney) sacked, and at the Shape launch party Pat goes postal with a shotgun, taking the staff hostage. As the police close in around the station, Alan becomes the chief negotiator, realising that this can only help boost his fame. But as he works on increasing his own publicity, Pat is menacing his on-air sidekick Simon (Key), while his offbeat security guard friend Michael (Greenall) finds a place to hide and his assistant (Montagu) has her own encounter with the media.
After all these years, Coogan is able to completely vanish into Alan's distinctive personality, saying all the wrong things at the wrong times while constantly getting distracted by irrelevant details. He only ever does the right thing by mistake. Yes, Alan is a buffoon, but he isn't stupid. Coogan plays him so perfectly that we can't help but like Alan even with his distinctive flaws. And the film actually generates a real sense of menace in this mini-Die Hard siege scenario, blending real danger with inspired physical comedy. And virtually every line of dialog has a joke in it.

Alan Partridge is a fatuous, egocentric radio host that has been one of telly's most famous fictitious comedy icons for several years. He now makes a return to screen as his employers, North Norfolk Digital based in Norwich, are about to be taken over by rival media company, Gordale Media, and branded the new name, 'Shape'. People's jobs are now on the line but Alan and his sidekick Simon look like they'll be able to save their shows; one thing's for sure, he's certainly trying to get on the good side of new top boss Jason Tresswell. However, when one DJ is sacked, there's more conflict in the company than they could ever have imagined when they are thrown under siege and brutally held hostage.

Alan Partridge makes a return as the superficial radio nitwit we all love in the upcoming next instalment of the Partridge franchise 'Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa'. The trailer now released shows Alan discussing movie titles with his associates, being particularly drawn to the title 'Colossal Velocity'. When the title 'Alpha Papa' is suggested, appropriately representing his initials in the radio alphabet and loosely meaning 'top daddy', he is underwhelmed, sticking as usual to his own thoughts. The film takes place in Norwich, Norfolk where his employer North Norfolk Digital is about to be taken over in a brutal siege by a major media company and given the new name, Shape.
