I saw Joe’s uncle, John Duttine, appear as the solicitor for Little Mo. He was a very efficient solicitor, and I hope he helps this poor hapless woman.

Having starred in Who Dares Wins, which is showing tonight on the Legend Channel, I think this actor is well worth checking out. I shall see to this shortly myself. You can see John in the repeats of Heartbeat, in which he plays a policeman.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Nov/22
Best known for his part as a policeman in Heartbeat, John Duttine also starred in the 1983 film β€˜Who Dares Wins’, alongside Lewis Collins, Edward Woodward and Richard Widmark. He played an unpleasant piece of work and a right contrast to his nephew, Joe. He seemed a bit taller than Joe as well, but I could be wrong as he played such a ferocious character, that I suppose I was expecting him to be quite tall due to his vile and threatening character.

Joe can have 5ft9.

What an excruciating storyline.

Joe's Tim isn't even 50, yet he needs a life-saving triple heart bypass operation. The very thought of that is painful, πŸ˜– so let's be warned and look after ourselves. It's never too early - or too late, for that matter.

A Touch of Frost - Dead Male One.

Joe's nasty little footballer ⚽ character has gone into the police station to talk to Inspector Frost regarding the kicking of another player in the head during a game, apparently putting him in a coma. Jack (Frost) says to him, facetiously, "Surely you can tell a head from a ball, even from your great height?"

Then he adds, "I've been having a look at your record, and you've had enough red cards during your career to tile a bathroom!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Fantastically put, Frost, who within a matter of minutes, finds out that drugs were involved in the comatosed state of the boy. Not funny at all, and the detective is now wondering if the competent player has been spiked.... πŸ€”

'That Great Height' is a standard 5ft9, though it's possible that he hasn't completely finished growing in the episode.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Aug/21
Joe starred in the same football-related episode of A Touch of Frost as Danny Dyer. Entitled 'Dead Male One', Danny isn't at all fond of Joe and smashes up the china he's selling on his market stall! πŸ™Š

I doubt if either of them were fully grown back then, and both looked in their late adolescence.

Joe's Tim's father might be 'dead' but he's still making appearances - to poor Yasmeen, in ghost form! πŸ‘» His name even appears in the credits....

Now that's a first! Ian Bartholomew surely needs a page, Rob? 5ft7? πŸ˜„

Joe gets 5ft9.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Dec/20
So Joe's 'Coronation Street' father, clearly messed up and in need of help decades ago, is no longer.

I read last week that Ian Bartholomew, who played Geoff Metcalfe, requested counselling when he read the scripts he had to learn as he didn't want to take that burden home to his family. That's a sensible thing to do. While the 'Coronation Street' fans were busy loathing him, he was having difficulty coping, having never taken on such an intense, cruel role before. He deserves to pick up Soap's No 1 Villain Award, and I'm sure he will. I've seen interviews with him on my phone and he's a nice guy!

Joe is, I'd say, 5ft9 and Ian a weak 5ft7 at 66 years of age. He probably topped 5ft8 in his youth.

I have seen him listed as 5’7” online!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Dec/20

Well done, Tim-Tims, for clobbering that nasty old father of yours!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Nov/20
When Ian Bartholomew's Geoff crept up behind his son at the start of today's Coronation Street omnibus, I seriously wondered if he'd make the 'Tall Page'! He looked at the most 5ft6, whereas before I'd have given him 5ft7.

Meanwhile, Joe's Tim continues to look a strong 5ft9! πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

He gets 5ft9.25 today.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Aug/20
That father of his has the wool well and truly pulled over his eyes, hasn't he? What a rotter Ian Bartholomew plays! 😝


5ft9, but can look taller because he chose a short Soap wife, who fortunately isn't short in the brains department or that of women's intuition!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Jun/20
Joe is really getting his loyalties mixed up! I feel that Sally is a far better judge of character than he could ever be. Just look at who his father is! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, even in Soapland....

Joe gets five nine. His father, played by Ian Batholomew, looks at the most five seven.

@ Sandy Cowell - Tim Healy and Tim Ross Nelson ain't though!

Protecting her interests my big toe, more likely that wife of Tim's is a selfish and ruthless individual. I wish we lived in a world where there was less cheating and money grabbing, we would all benefit from a world without these bad traits. If everyone treat others fairly then we would all be genuinely happy.

This woman is a piece of work, I hope she didn't get a penny!

Joe is from Halifax!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jun/20
Ooh nice! Joe's Tim has walked in on his lousy Dad looking at footage of the night HE had a knife at Yasmeen's throat, saying that nobody would miss her if she 'disappeared', so to speak.

So the plot thickens! There's incriminating evidence all over that house, and the truth WILL out. It always does in Soaps!

5ft9 for Joe.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Feb/20
His father a 'lovely, kind, thoughtful man'? He's an excuse for a man!

But that's what Shelley King's Yasmeen had to say to Geoff in order to shame him into realising that locking her in his magician's box was wrong and that, yes, she did cotton on to what he's doing, with his mental torment of her.

Then the pathetic waterworks were turned on, in typical cowardly bullying men's fashion. Joe's Tim can't leave that house, or Geoff's behaviour could escalate, but now that Tim's discovered what his evil father did, he knows something's amiss. He looks tall next to Geoff,😝 and gets a strong 5ft9, so 5ft9.25 it'll be.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jan/20
@ Nik - Tims Robbins and McInnerney are tall Tims!

The flipping cheek of that wife of Tim's. She wants Β£5,000 as a divorce settlement and they never even lived together, adding that she 'has to protect her interests!'

That's blackmail. What a nasty scheming piece of work! πŸ˜πŸ–•

Joe, who appeared in an episode of 'Inspector Morse' called 'Cherubim and Seraphim', gets 5ft9 this morning.
Nik said on 16/Jan/20
@ Sandy Cowell - Maybe Tim is a popular name in tall areas!

Tall Tim! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jan/20
That unbelievable father of his, with his finicky cleaning habits! Then he has the audacity to present his poor, put-upon, hardworking wife with a flipping HOOVER! I'd tell him to keep it!

Joe gets 5ft9.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Dec/19
I found out yesterday that 'Heartbeat' actor John Duttine is Joe's uncle! They do look alike...

That revolting DJ father of Joe's character, Tim, has just married pillar of the community, Yasmeen, and it looks as though he's going to domestically abuse her in every way. What a RAT! πŸ€

Joe gets 5ft9.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Dec/19
No Tim! (Joe's Coronation Street character). Your new T-shirt fits like a sausage skin! 🌭😳

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Aug/19
Joe's character Tim is turning into a real fitness fanatic, so Sally's influence on him is rubbing off well. You can't, as an actor, pretend to be fit; you have to look the part!

Maybe Joe will remain his 5ft9 just that little bit longer....πŸ€”πŸ‘Œ
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jun/19
Joe's character Tim's wife, Sally, looks at him, pensively, and says, "Are you in love with a horse?"

Next to Sally, Joe looks tall, but he is a perfectly average 5ft9.πŸ˜πŸ‘
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Apr/19
Good grief! Isn't Joe's character Tim rather on the young side to experience a heart attack, however minor? The fact is that things like this do happen, and the way his wife Sally is getting him into a newly revised healthier lifestyle is an excellent way of dealing with it, so members of the public 'of a certain age' can think long and hard about prevention being superior to cure. If it's already happened, the advice that Sally is doling out to Tim seems perfectly sound to me!

I give this 5ft-niner exactly 5ft9!

Sandy Cowell said on 17/Feb/19
Joe is playing his SECOND part in 'Coronation Street', I have just found out. The first was as a Policeman; I have no idea as to his rank, but I'm bound to find out if I continue with the 'Classic Coronation Street' episodes. It won't be a very high rank, bearing in mind his DOB was in 1970 and at present, I believe the year is 1991 in the vintage episodes. So it's not just John Thomson who has played two different parts in the Soap....

I came across this bit of trivia because I am more than 80% sure that Joe was in an 'Inspector Morse' episode, but I couldn't find any written proof. After further chewing over in my mind, the percentage has gone up even higher. Yes, I think he had something to do with the raves which Morse and Lewis were investigating because after taking ecstasy, Morse's precious teenage niece is under the impression that life could never get any better and she wants to leave on a high, so she takes her own life even though she has everything to live for.

The episode is called 'Cherabim and Seraphim', and it would be well worth checking this out. Joe will have been 22/23 at the time, so we'd be able to see if he's lost a small amount of height in 25/26 years or whether he walked with a more upright posture. If ever he'll have been that elusive 5ft10, it'll have been then.

Of course, any average-heighted man who is 'paired off' with a woman of Sally Dynevor's height (playing Tim's wife Sally Metcalfe, who I can't see to be as 'tall' as the 5ft2 she's written up as), is going to look on the taller side of average, so next to her, he looks like a Tall Tim!

Footnote: I found out yesterday that the average man called Tim is 5ft11.5!
Bobby 178cm said on 29/Jan/19
Hard to see him as being even a weak 5'10, let alone the full 5'10. Though I find even his 5'9 listing contestable. I guess he could be that tall though, but a chance of being a weak 5'9 too.
Nik said on 29/Jan/19
@ Rob - Is Joe more likely to be over 5'9" than under 5'9"?
Editor Rob
I think there is an equal chance, which is why I put him on 5ft 9, because I am not sure he would be 176 or say barely 175...somewhere in between seems reasonable.
Nik said on 27/Jan/19
@ Rob - Which of these options is most likely for Joe's height:

A) 5'8.875"?

B) 5'9.125"?
Editor Rob
Hard to pick one really, as like with many listings you can see a fraction above or below being quite possible.
CD said on 27/Jan/19
His character actually claimed 5ft 9 on-screen if my memory serves me right, he's certainly not over that mark.
Thomas Burgos said on 26/Jan/19
This one is rally tricky. I'm going to say 174.6 cm but he could totally be the full 5'9".
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jan/19
What a welcome addition Joe is to Celebheights! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Having just had the privilege and pleasure of watching him in 'Silent Witness', with a great favourite of mine, Amanda Burton, and all along knowing that he's made his mark in 'Coronation Street', I figured it was high time for Joe to make his mark on Celebheights - my favourite Celebrity website of the lot!

His wife in 'Coronation Street' is Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Metcalf in 'Coronation Street' - Joe's wife. They have both been through a great deal of misery and injustice, what with Sally being locked up in prison for something she had nothing to do with at all.

Oh, next to Sally, Joe looks at least slightly above average in height. Dame Dynevor, of course, is below average, so Joe does pass for a tall man next to her. Sally's daughters are both notably shorter than Joe's Tim, and anyone would be forgiven for estimating his height as 5ft9.5-5ft10. It's no big deal on the height front, but it IS above average, or 'tall average', whereas his 5ft9 is bang on average. At times, yes, I've taken Joe for taller when comparing him with his co-star. Now it wouldn't be a bad idea to fish out my 'Silent Witness' DVD's, compare him to Amanda Burton and Mick Ford, and get back with my findings. Not that I doubt Joe's height is 5ft9 at all! I'd just like to compare him to the 'Silent Witness' cast; I get the chance to size him up with the 'Coronation Street' crew virtually every single day. This series, 'Silent Witness', is always a real treat if you're lucky enough to catch it!

5ft9 for Joe.
Editor Rob
One thing is, the 5ft 10 resume height does seem hard to believe. 5ft 9 seems a more believable figure from what I've seen.
