Last weekend I at a local shop in N Cornwall when Joe Absolem came in. I'm 5'10" (178cms) and he was a fair bit taller than I am.

Rob, why does Google list this guy at 5'7"? It's obvious looking at him that anything under 5'11" is just absurd
Editor Rob: because they copied listings from other sites, namely imdb which listed him for nearly 10 years at 5ft 7.

Thank you for doing a page for him. Never bought the 5'7 listing but then that could have been taken mid 90s and then never updated
Editor Rob: nah, he had no height on imdb in 2004, so a few years after that somebody guessed 5ft 7 for the poor fella.

Yes Rob, this is a good height for Joe. On Doc Martin he often looks only 2 or 3 inches shorter than the Doc. Good actor this boy.

He's very close to 6ft. I was thinking the same thing as well while watching Doc Martin.

he became famous on eastenders in the late 1990s when he helped steve owen cover up the murder of saskia.

@ Yes Rob! He was growing in his late teens, to be sure!
The difference between his 'EastEnders' height and the size of him in the second Spit on Grave movie was drastic and noticeable. OK, I was marvelling at how much he'd grown up anyway, but his height was perhaps more stark staring obvious than the average amount grown by a boy during that amount of time!

Funny he's listed 5'7" on some sites 😂😂😂 by the way could you update my username to lee168cm please I'm on a new phone thanks

at least now there is a more reasonable height, I think if anybody looked at Doc Martin and seen Ian McNeice listed higher than joe absolom they'd be scratching their heads through to their brains!

Joe started life as quite an innocent young dude on EastEnders, but then he turned, got his own back on Martin Kemp's character and was so good at it that the film makers took note and gave him parts in horror films, one of which was 'I Spit on your Grave II', in which he was truly detestable!
He was also in a 90's teen Ouija board film, and I'm sure there have been others!
It was when I saw the 2nd 'I Spit...' movie that I decided that yes, Joe is positively tall, so just under 6ft comes as no surprise whatsoever to me!
He can have 5ft11.75!
Editor Rob: Joe did grow about age 17-19 range, he can look about 5 inches taller than Ian McNiece on Doc Martin I thought.
