• John Barrowman unhappy with 'Torchwood' sex scene complaints John Barrowman John being a badass and telling how it is OH SNAP U BEEN TOLD captain-sonic •
John Barrowman has hit back at complaints regarding love-making scenes in Torchwood: Miracle Day.

When the series aired in August, some viewers complained over “too much gay content” in the sci-fi drama.

Barrowman told iVillage: “When you watch Torchwood there is a warning at the very beginning that some scenes may offend or disturb people, so if you allow your children to sit and watch it with you that’s your responsibility, it’s not ours anymore.

“We kissed, we held each other, we lay on top of each other in bed… and there were lots of complaints about that.”

The BBC had previously edited a sex scene from the show from UK broadcast, although US network Starz aired the segment uncut.

The actor further declared: “Nobody complained that I was shot in the head four times, there were burning people in ovens, that I was stabbed by a mob of 50 people hundreds of times and I was hanging dripping my blood in a pit.

“So that’s what confuses me, because you’re not complaining about gay sex, you’re complaining about two men kissing.

“And it’s 2011. And people say, ‘Well why should we have that on television?’ Because the BBC have to represent the greater public - and there are gay people out there who pay their television license.

“For people to complain, that’s your prerogative - but you know what, none of them turned it off! They were just embarrassed because it put them in a position where they had to explain things to their kids or their family which probably should have been explained a long time ago.”

Pretty accurate.
