“Okay. Everyone stop sending me this now, I’ve seen it.”

YOU MIGHT HAVE seen the Batman prequel Gotham pop up from time to time on RTÉ and elsewhere over the last couple of years.

It tells the story of a young Jim Gordon, the childhood of Bruce Wayne and the origins of all the main Batman villains.

They’re well into their third season on FOX in the US, and last night they shared a promo pic from the upcoming episode All Will Be Judged.

And the character featured bore an *uncanny* resemblance to our own Dara Ó Briain

And oh how everyone let him know

So many messages and tags must have been coming that he had to address it

Okay. Everyone stop sending me this now, I’ve seen it.

The funny thing is, the character in question – Nathaniel Barnes – actually doesn’t look anything like Dara under normal circumstances

But it’s just the get up in this particular photo obscures enough of his face to make it look like he is the spit of Ó Briain

This looks like a temporary costume for this week’s episode – so let’s enjoy Dara’s doppelganger appearing on US telly while it lasts.

A wonderful thing.
