Surely times can’t be that hard for Karen Gillan already?
Having only just finished filming her final ever scenes for Doctor Who (she won’t come back, she said so. Mind you, Tom Baker had the same idea after he left Doctor Who and look what he’s doing now!), the actress has publicly declared her allegiance to US comedy Community and an interview posted on SFX has her asking if the show had any space to accommodate her on a guest spot!
Yes okay, we’re sure that she doesn’t need the work and it was only a joke but it’s nice to see that the girl hasn’t developed airs and graces as she makes a public announcement that she hopes to work on Community rather than expects it.
For those of you that have not had the pleasure to watch Community, you might want to give it a try. It’s about a group of college students that form a study group run by a suspended lawyer trying to earn a bachelors degree so he can get back into his profession. It also stars Chevy Chase so, you know, ‘nuff said! This is more Spaced meets The Big Bang Theory rather than plain old The Big Bang Theory.
So, Karen Gillan coming to an episode near you soon? Let’s see her off Doctor Who first before we think about anything else!
