First, assuming its a Shimano 8-speed rear derailleur and NOT Dura Ace, it will work fine with your 9-speed shifters, cassette and chain. I'm currently using a 105 8-speed rear derailleur on an otherwise all 9-speed 105/Ultegra bike and it shifts perfectly.
Second, Tiagra 9-speed (like both 105 and Ultegra 9-speed) brifters are both double and triple compatible.
