@Rob
He looks to have very bad posture next to you. Only up straight I'd buy 5'4. However, he looks 5'5 next to Jenny (old picture maybe?)
[Editor Rob: he's 5ft 4 range today, there was a 5ft 4 kid with us last year and he was roughly same as mccoy.]

sylvester told me he was 5'6 1/2". he might've been exaggerating though.

Doesn't look like he'd reach your eye level in the most recent pic Rob.
[Editor Rob: around 5ft 4 I think is fair, I watched him with 5ft 7 judy and her son (5ft 4) and he was roughly that mark.]

He does look like he's shrunk from his time as the Doctor. I know a bit off-topic, but I enjoyed him, he was an under-appreciated incarnation let down at times (like Colin Baker) with weaker storylines.

I thought I'd see him again and he was looking more a 5ft 4 guy, I put up another photo of him with me and one even of Jenny's 5ft 7 sister!

Rob, then how do you explain the height difference in your pic? Are you wearing 3 inch shoes or something?
[Editor Rob: look at Jenny's pic too, I don't think he's under 5ft 5 in that one]
Chris says on 27/Jul/14
Rob, not sure how you can give him 5.5 considering that pic with you.
[Editor Rob: 5ft 5...last time I seen him up close a year ago I thought he could still look about 5ft 5]

Looks even 5'4.5" if we consider that Jenny is leaning her head a little.
[Editor Rob: he could be that mark today, I'm sure actually I had a supplement for Hobbit (maybe from a movie mag) and it had heights listed and he was down as 5ft 4.5 in it!

there's a slight fault in that photo, I think it moved when scanning a little, so her face is slightly not quite right :)]
