Russell T Davies has confirmed Martha’s presence in the second season of Torchwood in the latest issue of the Doctor Who magazine. Martha Jones’ creator, tells the magazine his plans for the character: “You have to protect the fact that she’s still a Doctor Who character. For example, there is no sex or swearing with her in Torchwood, cos there will be some kids watching. It’s fine for Gwen to be doing it, or for Owen to be doing it, it’s very rare for Tosh to be doing it… but literally we sit there with a script taking swearwords out of Martha’s lines sometimes. Exactly the same with Captain Jack – he never sewars in Torchwood.”
