St. Patrick's Day, Michael Gough, and Love

"Batman's 'butler' Michael Gough dies at age 94"
The Associated Press, via (March 17, 2011)

"...He died of old age at home in England on Thursday, surrounded by family, his ex-wife Anneke Wills said through her agent.

"Wills said in an obituary posted on the Doctor Who website: 'As his body was deteriorating this week, he said that he wanted to hang on for St. Patrick's Day. And he did, just. In the end ... there is only love.'..."

His IMDB biography says that Michael Gough had roles from the voice of the Dodo Bird in Alice in Wonderland (2010) to Spintho in Androcles and the Lion (1946) And, like the AP article said, Alfred in Batman movies (1997, 1995, 1992, 1989) and Dr. Who (1966-1983).

To clarify, he wasn't one of the Doctors, he had a few roles in several episodes. Also, as far as I can tell from what's on the IMDB page, none of the characters he played in that series were named Alfred.

Just thought I'd mention that, since I was a little confused at first.

Thanks for the clarification. I didn't study the filmography all that carefully - and he 'looked like' at least one of the actors who played Dr. Who. Sort of.
