Four new cast members have been revealed for Torchwood: Children of Earth, the shortened third season of the cult show.

Producer Peter Bennett told Torchwood Magazine about the additions, a mixture of established and upcoming talent.

Former Cape Wrath star Lucy Cohu will play Alice, described by Bennett as "a woman keeping many secrets from the past".

Susan Brown, best known for her turn in The Riff Raff Element, plays Bridget Spears - "a character vitally connected to the government, which plays an important part in this story", according to Bennett.

The quartet is completed by newcomers Cush Jumbo and Rik Makarem, with the former playing Lois Habiba, "a secretary who hacks into some vital information", and Makarem portraying Doctor Rupesh Patanjali, a "junior doctor at St Helen's hospital who gets drawn into Torchwood's investigations".

They join a trio of previously announced guest stars - including Peter Capaldi - in the third season, which is currently filming for transmission on BBC One in early 2009.

The way that I've read that, are there going to be 4 new cast members or three. Or are they guest members?

There are four new cast members.

Lucy Cohu will play Alice
Susan Brown plays Bridget Spears
Cush Jumbo playing Lois Habiba
Rik Makarem Doctor Rupesh Patanjali

And they will be joining guest stars Peter Capaldi, Liz May Brice and Paul Copley. However the article doesn't really point out if they are just new cast members for the season or if they are replacing Tosh and Owen.

So it's akin to "you'll know when we know" kind of thing.
