Morrissey still looking a decent 6ft2 range at least if this guy's height is correct. I gauge about 2in tops in that photo...

He got his nickname from June Brown's "Dot Cotton" from East Enders.

How come vicky mcclure in 3 inch heels looks a good deal shorter than Martin here rob? Could martin be 5ft 7?
Editor Rob
The chance of Vicky under 5ft 4 is a good one.

He looks afraid about his height in the photo too, it doesn't surprise me at all. His hands shows nervousnesm.
However his frame could give him some roles.

Came late to Line of Duty, and he is definitely wearing some enhancing footwear - but he is obviously tall so might just want to be the tallest!

Yh im not convinced about 6ft4.5 imo. Didnt look more than 2 inches taller than Neil Morrissey in line of duty. Might have measured 6ft4.5 at say 10am. Id go 6ft4.25,doubt hes taller than Van Dijk or even Pietersen.

Rob, who would you say would measure the stronger 6'4.5" out of the three, Peak Christopher Lee, Craig Parkinson, or peak Stephen Fry?
Editor Rob
Fry in the 80's I think at times looked like he could pass for 6ft 5.

Looks about right. Maybe dips to 194 flat or a mm less at a low

@ Sandy Cowell & Junior Hernandez 1990 - You have both provided two very good comments! - Trez Bon!

Nobody should apologise for their height, we should all be encouraged by everyone else to accept our own height and be proud if it, however tall we are.

My iPad dosen't have accents either, unfortunately!

@ Junior Hernandez - You hit that one on the head! Trez cool!

Sorry about the absence of the accent - my phone doesn't seem to provide them!

Def what he claimed to be. One big Brit actor.

Why on Earth should a man apologise for being tall? Most guys would give their right arm to be his height!

With reference to his 'walking like an 80 year-old', I have heard of a similar situation of someone stooping all the time, this time a young girl, whose best friend was almost a foot smaller then her. She was forever bending down to speak to her friend and it was beginning to have an effect on her entire posture, until she was pulled up on it, and reminded every time it happened - by the adults who cared about her.

Nobody can help his or her height, and it pains me to hear stories such as this!

Craig gets 6ft4.5, and as Rob would say in his videos, told to WALK TALL WITH ROB PAUL!
