I think he can pull it off if he straightened up!

I swear Christopher looked 5ft6.5/7 in 'Jamaica Inn', a couple of episodes of which I saw the other day.

I thought Chris Fairbank was a bit taller than 5' 6 1/2"

Looks 5 ft 5.5 at best.

I couldn't help but notice Christopher sitting on a park bench in the 'Silent Witness' episode 'Friends Like These'. He was unashamedly boozing away, but had a soft and soppy side, offering a young boy, a victim of bullies, one of his dog's new puppies!
Chris gets 5ft6.5.

Rob you misread what Bobby said, he said 1980's not 1990's, but yeah Bobby its possible he might have been in that range in the 80's, 5'7.75 peak is believable but id also say 5'7.5 is possible as well.
In the photo with Rob I could see 5'6.5 for him today if he stood better.
Peak I give him 5ft 6.5, he looked shorter than a guy like Timothy Spall back in auf wiedersehen pet...5ft 5.5-6 today. Was shorter than joseph marcell that day

Would a solid 5'7 have been appropriate for him in the 1980s? He looks like he could have measured an inch taller as he looks quite hunched at the neck and shoulders. I think we need to add a peak height for him. Definitely a weak 5'8 at peak height.
In the 90's I don't think he looked as tall as 5ft 7

He he he! I thought I recognized the snivelling little character played by Christopher - and very well, I might add - in the mini series 'Jamaica Inn', which I have just this moment finished!
The names are still coming up, but had to be paused so that I could write this!
I remembered THIS ACTUAL THUMBNAIL PICTURE, so I really do think it is Christopher's photo from the play - it's identical to how he appears in this!
I could see the character was short as well as cowardly! I put him at 5ft6! Lately, the shorter guys I've been watching have been brave, but not this one! He let the side down! I give him 5ft6.25!
