BBC cuts Torchwood gay sex scene

Really? Isn't that the whole reason why people watch Torchwood? I would think that the fans of the show wouldn't bat an eyelash over this.
British Torchwood viewers won’t see a raunchy gay sex scene because BBC bosses thought it was too explicit.

The scene, with gay star John Barrowman’s character Captain Jack Harkness and a barman, has already been broadcast in the US on cable channel Starz.

The Sun reports that a source said executives felt the scenes were simply too sexy to show primetime audiences 20 minutes after the watershed.

The source said: “It wasn’t that it was a gay scene that worried people, but just the fact it was such an explicit sex scene, full stop.

A BBC spokeswoman told the newspaper that the gay sex scene and another which involved violence had been cut.

Last month, Barrowman promised Torchwood fans that the new series would be the sexiest yet, with “man sex” and “full-on” nudity.
