Rob, what peak height would you give Stanley Baxter? 5’9.5”?

In their many collaborations together, Baxter barely looks half an inch taller than Phillips. Phillips could very well have been 5’8.75” as much as 5’9”; I would never have thought anything over 5’9” but is 5’8.5” is probably too low as well.

I had forgotten he's yet to receive a page...the 9.5 might be a fair shout as he doesn't seem that much different than Leslie. I know he used to have himself listed an inch taller which seems impossible to believe, so likely adding an inch at least.

Also, he has an interesting quote about Height Terminology.

Rob, what peak height would you put Michael Craig at? 6’0”?

In Doctor in Love, I thought Craig had about three inches on Phillips, was eye level with Nicholas Parsons and was only about two inches shorter than 6’2” James Robertson Justice.
Editor Rob

Probarbly was 5'9" in his peak, watch him in Carry on constable. He's got a few inches on 5'7" Williams, and is taller, than most of the cast!
