Doctor Who star Karen Gillan 'wants Community role'
Doctor Who star Karen Gillan has admitted that she would love to appear in Community.
The cult NBC comedy features a spoof of the BBC's sci-fi drama, titled 'Inspector Spacetime'.
"I've seen a lot of Community," Gillan revealed in a BBC America interview. "I watched one of the episodes and got hooked and now I really, really love [the show]."
The actress added that she would love to appear in an episode, calling the 'Inspector Spacetime' scenes "kind of brilliant".
"I love Inspector Spacetime, it's so funny," she said. "I wasn't familiar with it until recently when my flat-mate said, 'Do you realise there's a Doctor Who spoof in a show over in the States?'"
Community was recently picked up for 13 more episodes by NBC.
In the UK, the series airs on Tuesdays at 10.30pm on Sony Entertainment Television. NBC recently confirmed that the show's fourth season will move to a new Friday night slot in the US this fall.

Doctor Who series 7 to première at the 2012 Edinburgh Television Festival
Doctor Who's seventh (new) series will be screened for the first time at the Edinburgh International Television Festival 2012, when the Doctor will take on the Daleks once more.
The festival takes place from August 23 to August 25 and last year saw the première of series six episode Let's Kill Hitler.
The BBC has yet to confirm when the new series of the cult sci-fi drama will hit our screens, though it is likely to follow the festival in the autumn.
Doctor Who co-creator Steven Moffat will attend the annual event, appearing on a 'Masterclass' panel for his other series Sherlock, alongside the show's other writers Mark Gatiss and Sue Vertue.
The Doctor's sidekicks Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are set to leave the show midway through the next series, and Moffat promises there will not be a dry eye in the house.
He also revealed that he considers the companions to in fact be the central characters of the series, saying: 'The story of Doctor Who is always the story of the companion, it’s always their story.
'It was Rose Tyler’s story, it’s Amy Pond’s story – the story of the time they knew the Doctor and how that began; how it developed and how it ended.'
