As far as I can tell, even though we're only one episode in, Gotham is not in a post-apocalyptic world setting. If anything, Gotham is taking a more film noir approach to its cinematography and backdrops, which is consistent with depcitions of the city throughout most of Batman's publication and film/television history. However, the look and feel of Gotham ...

Tom Dougherty: He was a douchebag and doesn't seems to have many friends in the department. Miss Kringle found the note about him leaving Gotham which Nygma forged.
