Not cool, BBC!

The highly-popular UK series Torchwood featured a sex scene involving bisexual alien-hunter, played by gay actor John Barrowman, and a male bartender that was ultimately cut by the British channel.

Ironically, the scene remained intact on the U.S. airing of the show.

No Torchwood

Filed under: TV NewsAnglophilia

At least for now!

Fox and BBC Worldwide have agreed not to go forward with their plans for a US version of popular UK show Torchwood. BBC is hoping to find a new partner for the project and say they are talking to other interested networks.

BBC Worldwide's executie VP of programming and production Jane Tranter adds, "It's very much ongoing and very much alive."

As for a stateside version of Dr. Who, don't hold your breath. Tranter says:

"It may well be confusing to have a British Doctor and an American Doctor at the same time. There is only one Doctor, so I don't see that happening."

Do U want to see Torchwood come to the US?

Torchwood Actor Certain Bisexual Character Will Remain In US Version!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayAnglophilia

We hope this turns out to be true!!

We reported earlier this year that FOX was looking to re-make the popular UK sci-fi series Torchwood for American audiences, and almost immediately people began to speculate whether or not the network would change one of the main character's sexual preference!!

Openly gay Scottish actor John Barrowman portrayed Captain Jack Harkness in the UK version, and has admitted he would LOVE to bring the character to American audiences, but only if the character continues hooking up with dudes!!

Barrowman says:

"Julie has said, as has Russell, that there will be no Torchwood without John Barrowman as Capt. Jack… If I am asked to do Torchwood again, I will do it at the drop of a hat - whether it's in America or back in Britain or if it's for a film. I absolutely love Capt. Jack. The last thing I would want would be for Jack to become this heterosexual, straight hero. He's an omnisexual guy. He likes men, women, aliens, whatever. I think we should continue going down that route."

We sincerely hope that US producers honor the integrity of the original and agree to those terms! Do we really need ANOTHER womanizing, super hetero scoundrel type??

We'll keep our fingers crossed.

What do U think?? Would U watch an 'omnisexual' male sci-fi character??
