Torchwood receives complaints for being "too Gay"

(Insert rude caption to do with sonic screwdrivers here.)
It's too American! I miss Ianto! It's not as good as Children of Earth! These are just some of the complaints of fans I've seen and heard recently. Now the BBC have received complaints that the show is "too gay". This probably is due to the gay sex scene between omnisexual Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and a bartender in episode 3 Dead Of Night. However the scenes were cut down for the UK so what are they complaining about? There are quite a few references to homosexuality but this is Torchwood created by Russell T Davies who will shoehorn innuendo or a gay character into every episode if he can and always has done so what do people expect. No one ever complains a show is too heterosexual...
