Peter Davison's height is 5ft 11in (180 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 0.25in (184 cm)
British actor best known for his role as The Fifth Doctor in BBC's long-running tv show Doctor Who. He also had a memorable role in the tv series All Creatures Great and Small. On agency resume he is listed 185cm, although in person I think he looked nearer 5ft 11 and has lost an inch of height since the 1980's.

Comment on the Height of Peter Davison

In his younger days, he looked a strong 6ft, maybe even 6'1".

He's lost more than average for his age

The 185cm isn't his claim, I don't think
[Editor Rob: it was on his resume, so I'd say it was, he's definitely shifted height over the 50-60 age period.]

First met peter in 1986 he was 6 1 spot on only had trainers on. Met him last year and I would say he was 6 feet as he as aged a little which is to be exspected.

He's lost 4cm...? More like he's always been 5'11.

Weak 5 '11 if that

I think 6' and a half in his youth is reliable.

I interviewed him in February, stood next to him and sat talking to him for half an hour. I'd say 5-11 is right on. He's not a big guy at all, actually is much more delicate in person than he looks on screen or in photographs. People do get shorter with age and it's possible he was a legitimate 6 feet in his youth.

Peter looks to be a solid 5'11"...maybe a bit more. Rob is Peter a relatively big guy in person? He looks about 190-200 lbs.
[Editor Rob: he might be that range, but he's certainly nowhere near his 6ft 1 claim, a guy I know who was 5ft 11.5 was taller than him that day...]
Editor Rob said on 7/Sep/06
also quoted himself, 2001 mirror "I'm 6ft 1in and quite broad-shouldered so people don't notice"
