Pete Stupples

Played by Tom Bennett

Pete is Tom's best mate going back to primary school days. He may not be the sharpest tool in the drawer, and mistakenly thinks he's a major "player" in the romantic department, but he's an upbeat and loyal friend to Tom. The two friends have always had three things in common: "Booze, birds, and the Spurs." Pete works at a children's zoo as a "Cage Management Associate" and feels at home surrounded by animals and children because they're his equal, emotionally and intellectually. He doesn't really understand Tom's new-found interest in genealogy but is always game for new experiences, so happily accompanies him on his quest.
