Nice, warm picture of Chris, Rob and Jenny.
There's a distinct possibility that Chris is 5ft10.5 now. 😁👍😃🤝

I certainly think that 5'11" was liable for his peak height!

I saw the 'Blackadder II' episode over Easter, and very funny it was too - all over again!
Chris was seen with 6ft Tim McInnerny looking him straight in the face, as indeed was the case when he was chatting to Rowan Atkinson, 5ft11.5 I think in those days.
I feel almost inclined now to believe that Chris could have been slightly more than 5ft11 at his peak, but if I had any doubts before, then they were quoshed with that episode!
5ft11, strong, for Chris with none whatsoever deducted!

I loved him in 'the Brittas Empire' - and so did my Mum!
We used to watch it together and laugh...those were the days!
That's quite tall, 5ft11! Chris starred in an episode of 'Blackadder', and apart from dear old Tony Robinson's Baldrick, I've never, ever seen an even remotely small/average- heighted actor star or guest star in 'Blackadder', so on those grounds alone, I was expecting Chris to be about 5ft10.5/11!
I am going along with 5ft11, though he's bound to be a bit smaller now, but there is only one box, so I'll go for the man's peak height! 🐍🍻🐍
(He's definitely smaller in the above picture with Jenny and Rob! Just as well I'd already written my piece when I took that in!)
Editor Rob: Barrie I think in last 2 years is probably at a stage of losing a small fraction...but over 5 years ago still looked near 5ft 11, noticeably above how 5ft 10 men look to me.

Chris Barrie is always 5'10 no changes and Llewellyn 5'11

You think he could have been a fraction above this in his prime?
[Editor Rob: hard to say, always possible though]

I always thought he was more 6'-6'1 when you compare him to Craig Charles and Danny John Jules in Red Dwarf.

Is it me or does he look 6 inches taller than Jolie in this picture?Click Here
wouldnt that make Jolie 5'5-ish?

Always looked same height as Kryten, but that was because of his faultless posture. 5'11 seems accutate

That's about right. Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) is the tallest Dwarfer at about 6'. (he's an inch taller than Barrie/Rimmer). Yes, Rimmer does have a pole up his arse so he's always standing completely straight.
