Brosnan could often pass for a weak 6ft2 on Remington Steele and is clearly taller than Barry in that episode. Barry at 6ft0½ and Pierce at 6ft1½ makes the most sense. About an inch between them…

Rob, maybe 6’0.75” would be more appropriate for Barry?
On Diagnosis Murder, Barry was at least an inch taller than Dick Van Dyke who was pretty much 5’11.75” at that time. Granted Pierce Brosnan was taller than Barry on Remington Steele, but I cannot think of anyone with better posture than Brosnan (except maybe David Niven) and Brosnan could have been 6’1.5”. Moreover, Barry did often practice a slouched posture on his tv appearances.
That's as high I think I'd try to argue.

Victoria Rowell is who I was thinking of... Didn't know she already had a page!

Been a long time since I saw it Robbe, and wouldn't have remembered specific episodes. I know I fancied that black woman in it, I forget her name.

Barry was totally dwarfed by 6'6 Fred Dryer in one episode of Diagnosis Murder where Fred played dirty police chief. I took couple of screenshots but i have lost them somewhere. Rampage, or Arch, remember seing that episode? It's called "Retribution".

Yeah Arch...Dan Paris could easily be mistaken for Dick's son. Has that same cocky, gleeful grin. Barry on the other hand looks more like Jason Patric's older brother....or just about the right age to pass off as Mike O'Hearn's dad. Nothing like Dick....

"Lantern jaw" is a great description. Not a good photo above, but has that strong jaw and look only a few Americans have. I always thought Dan Paris from Neighbours could pass for a Van Dyke. I thought he could look taller sometimes with his dad on Diagnosis Murder but if he was shorter than Pierce...

Yeah Rob here's a still from that episode of Remington
Similar difference here as it was with Kent McCord on Galactica. Definitely think that strengthens the case for Brosnan being 6ft1½ range

Rob, here's Brosnan with Barry back in 2013
Pierce actually looks almost 6ft2 if Barry was still roughly 6ft

Wow, I always thought this guy was like 6ft3, he's built like linebacker. Massive shoulders, lantern jaw. No way was he only 168lbs, more like 200-210lbs jacked. He's nothing like his dad for sure.
But yeah even his 6ft1½ claim doesn't hold up next to Kent McCord (who I suppose cone could argue was the full 6ft2?). I see at least an inch there. Maybe he wore lifts at times...he reminds me so much of Nick Nolte...another broad dude who tricked many into thinking he was much taller...only difference is Nolte admitted to 6ft.
I could see a case for 6ft0¾ peak
I don't know if the clip is on Youtube, but he was shorter than Pierce Brosnan in an old remington steele episode.

Oh great - Dick Van Dyke’s hunky son is here!
He was an added bonus for female Diagnosis Murder viewers,
and sometimes, other sons of Dick’s would star too. Barry seemed the tallest of the Van Dyke fraternity.
6ft1.25 peak and 6ft today.
