Raquel Turner ( Tessa Peake-Jones) — Raquel was introduced because Sullivan wanted more female characters and for Del to start meeting more mature women. Her first appearance, in " Dates", was intended to be a one-off, but she was written in again a year later and thereafter became a permanent cast member. [25] A trained singer and actress whose career never took off, she met Del through a dating agency, but they fell out over her part-time job as a stripper, before getting together again. This time she moved in with Del, helping to calm him, and they had a son together, named Damien. As the character developed, it was revealed that she was previously married to Del's nemesis, Roy Slater. [26] [27]

Edward Kitchener "Grandad" Trotter ( Lennard Pearce) — Sullivan was fascinated by the idea of having a big age gap between Del Boy and his younger brother Rodney; the elderly character of Grandad, and later, Uncle Albert, gave the situation the voice of an "old man who had seen it all". [15] In casting the role of Grandad, Sullivan had in mind an actor similar to Wilfrid Brambell, who had played Albert Steptoe in Steptoe and Son, but chose not to cast Brambell himself, thinking him too closely associated with Steptoe. [11] After seeing Pearce's audition, Sullivan chose him immediately. [16] Unkempt and absent-minded, although sometimes displaying a high intelligence, Grandad rarely left the flat or even moved from his armchair in front of two television sets. He was often assigned the job of cooking meals, despite his notoriously poor cooking skills, which Del describes as his "role in the family circle" to ensure he still "feels needed". [17] Pearce died in 1984 during filming of the fourth series [18] and Sullivan wrote a new episode, " Strained Relations", to write Grandad's death into the series.
