Karen Gillan wants to be on Inspector Spacetime
We dropped by the Doctor Who studio in Cardiff just before The Ponds wrapped on their final episodes to talk with Karen Gillan about Community’s (NBC) Doctor Who-spoof “Inspector Spacetime”.
It turns out she’s a huge fan of both the sitcom and the show within the sitcom. #AmyMeetsAbed
Let’s do this, Tumblr (reblog and tweet with the hashtag #AmyMeetsAbed.)
EW: Did you model him on a more traditional vampire?
Mark Gatiss: No, Toby gave me this fantastic description. He just sent me a text that said, “Would you come and play the King Vampire?” I said yes immediately. Then, he sent me the script for episode 7, which is where we arrive right at the end, and I have that wonderful line, “Well, who’s hungry?” It said in the description that I am dark as the night and older than dirt. I loved that. Also, brilliantly, Toby said, “Let’s call him Mr. Snow,” as if he’s so impossibly old he doesn’t really have a name anymore. He forgot it a thousand years ago.
Alex: How did you get to do Doctor Who?
Mark: I was asked to do it. I didn’t even have to audition, they just asked me to do it. That’s probably because I was on a series called Battlestar Galactica and a series called Firefly and a series called Dollhouse which were known to the writers and producers of Doctor Who. I probably had the coolest role in Battlestar. It was the hardest, strangest role I’ve ever done.
