A cult sci-fi actor from US show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and an Australian icon are to be the latest additions to the cast of Torchwood. James Marsters, who starred as Spike, the punk-goth vampire in Buffy, will appear in the first episode of the new series of the Doctor Who spin-off, it emerged yesterday.

And Jim Dale, most famous as Jim from Neighbours, will join his former soap daughter-in-law Kylie Minogue by filming in Wales.

While the pop princess is making the Christmas special of Doctor Who, Dale, who most recently played Bradford Meade in Ugly Betty, will be filming Torchwood for BBC Wales in Cardiff.

He said, "I am thrilled to be working on Torchwood and delighted to be in [the UK] again. I am a huge fan of British television drama."

Marsters, who says he watches both Doctor Who and Torchwood in the US, said, "I am a huge fan [of both shows] so it was me who knocked on their door," he said.

"I am really excited about the character I am playing.

"I can't say too much about him, except he is naughty and a bit of a psychopath."

Another familiar face among the surprise guest stars on Torchwood is Doctor Who's companion Martha Jones played by Freema Agyeman who brings her time-travelling expertise and medical skills to the team halfway through the series. She added, "I'm really looking forward to working with the Torchwood team and can't wait to start filming. "It's a huge new challenge and a wonderful opportunity to develop and expand the character of Martha Jones. "The smash-hit thriller drama, which was created by Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies, is currently filming for a new series which will be shown on BBC Two early next year.
