Peckham Uncovered
 
Raquel

Raquel
DOB: 04.06.1957
Place: Hammersmith

Tessa Peake-Jones

Rachel (or "Raquel" as Del would say) first encountered Del via the Technomatch Matrimonial Agency in 1988. Although she told Del she was an actress the truth was soon to be revealed when she was booked to perform in the Nag's Head - as a stripagram. Despite this shakey start love soon blossomed between the pair and their offspring, Damien, was born in 1991.

Raquel remains a frustrated actress dreaming of major stardom. She once toured the US in a production of My Fair Lady - however her role was as a flower seller. Perhaps her greatest part was when she played a lizard person in Doctor Who.
