David always seems to star in dramatisations which make him look smaller than 5ft9.
I'll give an example: in Cracker, he had to stand next to the 6ft1 Robbie Coltrane, in Inspector Morse, he didn't look too tall alongside 5ft11 Kevin Whately, and now, in an episode of Agatha Christie's Marple, entitled Murder Is Easy, he has look up to Anna Chancellor in high heels, who simply has to reach 6ft+ in those contraptions. (I think she's chalked up as a scrape under 5ft10, but looks taller in my eyes.)
Also starring in Marple is the just under 6ft Benedict Cumberbatch, but on the brighter side, he towers over tiny and charming 5-footer Shirley Henderson!
David gets 5ft9 from me. 😁👍

He told me he was 5'11". He wasn't - 15 years ago. About 5'9" then would have been right

I think David is equally good at comedy and serious acting. He was in an 'Inspector Morse' episode, (Dead on Time), getting fitted up as an act of revenge, for something that turned out to be assisted suicide, and Lewis protected Morse from knowing that it was his first love who did the assisting bit! Good and thoughtful Lewis even chucked some evidence in a pond at the end! David's character is of course, let out of the nick, but not until he's been made to suffer for the car crash that killed the daughter of the couple (Morse's former sweetheart and her husband, the one who can't live with his terminal illness - and won't.)
I also saw David in 'Cracker', and he's been in 'Midsomer Murders', so he has acted in quite a few superb detective dramas.
Comedy-wise, he played a prominent part in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral', and was in 'The Thin Blue Line', giving ample opportunity for us to take in his height. I did think that he was slightly less than the 5ft9 printed here, but that could have something to do with the fact that he is slightly rotund, with short legs, though in the picture above he looks a lot like he's been on a successful diet, so good on him for that! 👍
I am going for 5ft8.5 for David on this occasion.
