I have to agree with more towards 6'3 R.I.P.

I met Jon in 1995 in Birmingham city centre
Editor Rob: any idea how tall he looked?

Personally, I'd rate this guy as a strong 6ft2 and Baker a weak 6ft3...

Rob, who do you think was taller at peak, Jon Pertwee or Tom Baker?
Editor Rob:
I have actually rewatched all pertwee stories, in some he had a wee 1.5-1.7 inch heeled shoe...I intend to rewatch Baker's stuff next, but in person especially the first time I saw him he still looked quite tall.

He looked a very strong 6ft2 guy at least in the 60's-70's and sometimes near 6ft3. In the 80's-90's he may very well have been less.

Rob, isn't 6ft2 flat a bit low?

He looked nearer 6ft3 in Doctor Who for sure. Later on he may have been this mark though
Editor Rob: I watched a lot of Pertwee and didn't really think he looked over 6ft 2 the more episodes I watched.

I met him in 1986,at the BBC studios,at lime Grove,I stand right next to him in the Canteen,and was shocked how tall he was,a good 6'2''+ must of been 6'3'' as a young man.

Met him in oldham england few years before he passed,looked a tiny bit shorter than me {6' 2.5"} but he was in his 70's i think so its to be expected.

Worzel Gummidge - best TV comedy of the lot! Jon Pertwee was perfect for the lead scarecrow role. Went to the area it was filmed in - just beautiful (Hampshire, UK).
