I’m sure this is an easy question for any Whovian. What’s the connection between Gotham and Doctor Who?
Gotham: Pilot (101)
Yes, it’s dark and dreary, with a film noir/graphic novel feel, but it fits. I’m on board, at least for now.
Not having an in-depth knowledge of the Batman legend, I may be at a disadvantage, but I don’t see it that way. Yes, I know about the major villains, but not their backgrounds; and I know next to nothing about James Gordon. So I can watch the story unfold as its told, without the quibbles that happen when shows depart from well-known (and well-loved) stories.
