Some were worried that US execs would want to dumb-down the gay elements, eliminating part of the risque appeal of the Doctor Who spinoff.
"But Barrowman has stated otherwise. He told US magazine Entertainment Weekly: 'I knew they would be true to the show and not change it drastically. If it was watered down, I wouldn't have done it.
"'For those people who are staunch fans, it's going to have the heart and soul of Torchwood which we've always had, plus the energy and excitement of a show that's bigger and better.'"
Evidently there's going to be even more boy-on-boy hotness. Suh-weet!
