"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.
