English actor and writer known for playing Mycroft Holmes in BBC's Sherlock. On his Spotlight actors directory page he's listed as standing 6ft 1 and on playing the 5ft 4 King Charles I, he mentioned he was "Nine inches too tall!". In this photo, he had about .3in more shoe than me.

Gatiss and Alwyn looks close

Yes of course, maybe 1/8 or ~1/4" MAX between them.
My bet on Mark Gatiss, solid 6'1" tall and his avg guess here fits for 6'1.5" man!
Straight posture too!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/May/23
Gatiss and Alwyn looks close
QM6'1.75"QM said on 2/May/23
Taller than younger hairy Joe Alwyn. Plus Gatiss without hair.
Joe is 185, Gatiss is 185.5cms.
Perfect height.

No less than 6'1...and possibly 6'1.5 out of bed. He has excellent posture.
Darksol64 said on 26/Apr/22
Strong 6'1, no more.

If not for the 0.3" advantage I'd agree with the 6'1.25 guesses...but given the footwear, I can't.

Just a solid strong 6'1 looks just right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Apr/22
Edges Tennant for sure but Joe Alwyn I think one can argues looks a big 6ft1er as well...both marginally shorter than Hiddleston though

Both guys don't fall below 6ft1 at their low and have a decent chance of getting up at 6ft2
QM6'1.5"QM said on 11/Apr/22
Strong 6'1", taller than David Tennant.
At least the same height as Joe Alwyn.
Almost eye to eye with Tom Hiddleston.

6'1.75" in the morning.
He's the right one of true 6'1 man :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Mar/22
Slim, I've said all along he's the perfect recipient of that listing since Rob has met him and gauged him at least 6ft1
Slim 6'0.25 said on 27/Feb/22
6’1 and one eighth

Likelier to be a hair over this listing than under
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 22/Jan/22
him and Jonathan Ross are identical, i would gave both 186 cm with Gatiss being the stronger one, but Ross would hit this mark easily in his youth
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/22
Him and a peak Bill Murray would be an interesting comparison
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 7/Jan/22
@berta i think with the same footwear as when he met rob, he can be peak Arnold's heigth twin, look 6'1.5 here, but barefeet, i think arnold would edge him on the stadiometer, but in person, it would still difficult to tell the difference
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 7/Jan/22
Look solid 6'1.5 in this picture, even considering the footwear advantage, he's still a solid solid 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Oct/21
I'd give an ever so slight edge to Arnold
berta said on 23/Oct/21
Rob do you really think this guy is half inch shorter than peak arnold? I think they could have been identical. maybe 185,8 ish both at peak.
Slim 6'1.75 said on 3/Oct/21
Can pass off for a strong 6’1”
Slim 6'1.75 said on 23/Sep/21
186 is possible I’d bet a million dollars he’d edge out Costner

Rampage; ronaldo and Holloway could also be 186 but Costner was just a flat 6’1 at peak still a good height 👍

Gatiss would at least be 188 out of bed

I would give gatiss a 6’1.25 listing and it makes sense 4.5cm taller than Benedict cumberbatch
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Sep/21
Yeah 6ft2 the second he steps out of bed is probable. A very sturdy 6ft1 by afternoon/evening never below that.

I think he’s a shoe in for the 6ft1⅛ listing. I know Ronaldo, Holloway and Costner also get brought up but Rob hasn’t met those guys...
Slim 6'1.5" said on 30/Aug/21
185.9 is not impossible

I reckon 188 range in the mornings 👍
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 29/Aug/21
Could he be 6'1.25 Rob? He can pull it off from what I've seen of him in telly. He could look 4.5 inches taller than 5'8.75 pemberton.
Editor Rob
he could maybe hold onto 6ft 1 through to dinner, so you could make a case just over 6ft 1 at lunch.
The odds might be greater for that than just under 6ft 1 afternoon.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Aug/21
Slim, I think he'd measure that and 6ft2 first thing.

The sort of guy you'd like present to help weed out the fake 6ft1ers from the genuine ones!
Slim 6'1.5" said on 19/Aug/21
A chance to be an eighth or quarter inch over 6’1”
Elene said on 9/Aug/21
Lower than 6’1 is impossible
Elene said on 5/Aug/21
Wow a strong 6’1.might be taller than this,like 186 cm,but no more than that.
M-185-N-183 said on 21/Jul/21
If he is flat 6’1 then his eye level must be just 10-10.5 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/21
Stays above 185cm at his low
Spooner said on 20/Apr/21
In BBC Sherlock I always thought he was just above 6 foot, but the more I see he looks at absolute least 185.5 to me.
Slim 6'1.5 said on 19/Apr/21
A chance to be a solid 186cm
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Mar/21
I've just been rooting around for information on Sam Kelly, who died of cancer aged just 70 - far too young in this day and age.

There was a particularly touching tribute from Mark, so I thought I'd write this on his page. Sam starred alongside Ronnie Barker in 'Porridge', as Bunny Warren, and far more besides. Having just seen the harrowing episode of 'Inspector Morse' entitled 'Second Time Around', about the unsolved killing of an 8-year-old child which Morse actually solves, we see Sam playing the part of a writer. He is beautifully spoken, but drinks and smokes too much, burping out loud and offending Inspector Morse, but I found it highly amusing, and considering how passionately sad the episode is, I saw it as a welcome a welcome bit of relief.

Good old Sam Kelly! 🐇🏚️

I'm giving the caring Mark Gatiss 6ft1.5. How I loved him in 'The League of Gentlemen'!

slim 6'1 said on 15/Jan/21

He's not so tall as 6'1.25" barefoot, but about flat 6'1" afternoon/evening it's honest claim.
And read my comment about C Ronaldo below -"QM6'1QM said on 13/Nov/20".
~ 6'2" in the classic leather shoes.
slim 6'1 said on 28/Jan/21
About 4.5cm between gatiss and cumberbatch
slim 6'1 said on 22/Jan/21
Holloway and cr7 are probably dead on identical or josh Holloway minimally edges him out
slim 6'1 said on 15/Jan/21
Rampage clover, my guesses for those men:
Gatiss: 185.9cm
Cr7: 186.5cm
Obama: 185-185.5cm
Josh Holloway: 186.5-187cm
Kevin Costner: 185.5cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jan/21
Him, Ronaldo, Obama, Josh Holloway and prime Costner would be tough to distinguish

All arguably within that 185.5-186cm zone
slim 6'1 said on 2/Jan/21
186.0 is possible
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Dec/20
Mark Gatiss was the answer on a Chase question just now. Chaser Paul Sinha got it right and couldn't say enough about what a talented guy Mark is.

That's high praise indeed!

6ft1.25 😉👍🎄
Rory said on 17/Dec/20
Standing alone gives a tall impression of around 6ft2 proportion wise,but really when stood next to people of known height never really looks much more than 6ft1. Wouldn't completely rule out 1.25 but would definitely rule out 1.5.
QM6'1QM said on 13/Nov/20
He's one of the most authentic 6'1"s on this site, I also think he will be taller than Ronaldo (around few mm).
Excellent posture as always.
Classic tall.
Slim 6'1" said on 11/Nov/20
Got him at 186.0 cm
Slim 6'1" said on 31/Oct/20
Less than 5 cm between cumberbatch & gatiss

Gatiss: 186
Cumberbatch: 181.5
Slim 6'1" said on 31/Oct/20
I see a 185.9cm guy here he could get a 1/8th or quarter inch upgrade
Canson said on 18/Oct/20
187.5 out of bed
185.5 afternoon
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/20
6ft1⅛ could be it for him. I agree he can look as tall 6ft1½ and even occasionally 6ft2 (out of bed/morning range for definite) but I'd be very surprised if he actually measured that afternoon/evening.

Certainly wouldn't give him less than this listing either though. Clearly edges guys like Tennant and Amell

🎂🎁🎊😹 Happy Birthday Mark! 😹🎊🎁🎂

A Very Happy Birthday to talented funnyman, actor and writer Mark Gatiss, who celebrates his 54th Birthday today. It's good to see that Mark knows the true height of the unfortunate King Charles I, who has been played so many times by actors many inches taller!

6ft1.25 😁👍🎈

Rem said on 11/Oct/20
Rob ypur proportions are really big for a 5'8 guy. You are almost shoulder to shoulder and this guy is 5 inches taller than you. You give the impression of being at least a 5'9.5 guy.
Editor Rob
I don't know about that, Mark is a genuine 6ft 1 range guy though.

Lower shoulders could effect how some people view height too - as can head size, eyes/chin levels...
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Oct/20
My new guess is 6’1.25”
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Oct/20
At second glimpse 6’1.25” is possible like 185.9

Ben is 181 not 182. 4cm between gatiss and cumberbatch
QM6'1QM said on 31/Aug/20
He will be probably taller than CR7 Ronaldo, but it's only my opinion.
Pena said on 22/Aug/20
He looks lot taller than my 186cm friend. But maybe my perspective it just different cause im 179cm. He seems to be guy who use big footwear. Cause he made 178,5cm Rubert look short and even benedict who is 182cm.
Slim 6'1" said on 8/Aug/20
185 listing is spot on, no need for a 186 upgrade

A 6’1” that actually claims their true height

185, legit 6’1”
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/20
Rob, who do you think peak would measure tallest out of Gatiss, Firth, Brosnan, Butler and Brand?

The more I see of this guy, he gives a similar impression on screen to the others I mentioned, a 6ft1½ impression
Editor Rob
All can pull an impression of 6ft 1 up to 1.5. Brand's footwear and hair helps him at times, but they all could really end up within 1/4 to 1/3rd of each other.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/20
QM6’1QM, the guy standing behind him shatters that illusion immediately though.
QM6'1QM said on 17/Jun/20
Jesus Christ man, he looks like long 6'3 or even 6'4" with very good posture there: Click Here
QM6'1QM said on 22/Mar/20
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/20

Definitely, Rampage, range of 78-82 kg looks quite skinny for a solid 6ft1in as Mark Gatiss.
By the way, I'm strong 6'1 (186.1-2 cm in the evening) and my weight is 70 kg only. Everyone says to me how i slim and i think about me as slender man, lol. Now i eating pretty much of protein (eggs, meat, nuts, milk, vegetables, bread etc.) in daily routine for a life.
What do you think ?
Have a great day, bro!!!

P.S. **** coronavirus!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/20
Rob, who looked taller in person, Gatiss or Richard Brakes?
Editor Rob
I'd give Brakes the edge up close.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/20
Looks 80kg which at a solid 6ft1 is quite skinny
slimjim said on 17/Mar/20
cold be 6ft 1.25 or even 6ft 1.5
QM6'1QM said on 13/Mar/20
Rob, how much Mark's weight - 174-178 pounds/ 79-81 kg ??
Always look skinny and thin man to me.
Editor Rob
yeah he's not 'that skinny', but trim enough to be in 170's range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/19
I see about 3cm between them. If George is still roughly 183cm that does arguably make Mark 186cm
QM6'1QM said on 11/Dec/19
Mark Gatiss and George Lazenby: Click Here.
What do you see, guys ? My opinion is around 3 cms.
Editor Rob
Gatiss 6ft 1 and Lazenby today still around 6ft. Last time I seen George early this year, he wasn't over 6ft, but hadn't really lost uch height from 10+ years ago.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/19
Both of those guys look solid 6ft1 range
QM6'1QM said on 12/Nov/19
Rob, my personal opinion, Mark Gatiss is 185 cm minimum before the bed, same case as Joe Alwyn.
Do you agree ?
Editor Rob
Both those guys probably wouldn't fall under 185cm at worse.

K.A 188 ! said on 7/Sep/19
He has a stance similar to CR7.
Am sure this man might still hold a decent 6ft1 even at night probably 187 out of bed and 185 at night.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Aug/19
174.5 is likely, but I wouldn't go higher than that. He has a high eye level for a man of his height.
Importer said on 6/Aug/19
The way I see it for 6'1" is that they have an average eye level of 174cm, so it may vary a cm more or less depending on headsize. I didn't take his footwear into account in my previous comment, my bad.
Importer said on 6/Aug/19
@Christian 6'5 3/8" 174.5cm?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Aug/19
There's no way that his eye level's 5'9", especially considering that his head is slightly tilted up and that he has .3" more footwear than Rob.
Importer said on 5/Aug/19
Eye-level minimum 5'9" probably millimeters above it.
Importer said on 2/Aug/19
6'1" with impeccable posture :)
Interesting how both Mark Gatiss and Peter Capaldi stand with such a good posture and guessed at 1cm taller than they are by forum members.
Shashank 6'4 1/8 said on 13/May/19
anywhere between solid to strong 6'1

This one definitely a TRUE 6'1.
QM6'1QM said on 21/Mar/19
Alex R said on 17/Mar/19

No, he isn't so tall. Take photo with Tom Hiddleston as proof. But, yes, on this pic Gatiss gives really tall impression of 6'1.25" guy.
Alex R said on 17/Mar/19
Looks at least 187cm to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/19
Gatiss, Mitchell, Murray at peak and Ronaldo come to mind when thinking of 6ft1⅛ candidates
howhiami said on 2/Feb/19
So, that means the other guys in the L of G are all relatively short, especially Reece Shearsmith, who can only be about five seven tops.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/18
He easily hits 187.5cm out of bed if not 188cm
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Dec/18
@ QM6'1QM - Nice picture, reminding me to buy myself a copy of that Gunpowder Plot-era-based torturous production that was showing last October (2017), starring Liv Tyler, Peter Mullan and, of course, Mark!

I'd like to go with 6ft1.5 on the evidence offered here!
QM6'1QM said on 3/Dec/18
Mark Gatiss and Lyv Tayler: Click Here.
It's easily 3.5 inches between them.
Sakz said on 25/Nov/18
@QM6'1QM Yeah that's what I would lean towards. I specified a range because it covers him being 'about 6'1'.
QM6'1QM said on 24/Nov/18
Sakz said on 9/Nov/18

Well, honestly, I do not think that such a guy like Mark will be below 185 cm, especially with his perfect posture. My opinion: 185.4 cm at lunchtime, 185.1 before bed. Not less. 6'0.75" too low, meanwhile ...
Sakz said on 9/Nov/18
So pretty much an average sized head then. 6'0.75-6'1 would be the range he would measure.
Sakz said on 8/Nov/18
@Rob How long would you say his head is?
Editor Rob
Probably closer to 9 than 9.5.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Nov/18

People here are deceived by his small head and impeccable posture. He doesn't look more than 6'0.75", I agree.
QM6'1QM said on 7/Nov/18
Andrea said on 6/Nov/18

Mark Gatiss is certainly not less than 187 cm in the morning (maybe, yes, he is not tall as 187.5 cm, but still). Even if it is less than 6'1/ 185.4 cm in the evening, it is no more than 2/8 or 3/8 under the 6'1 mark, which does not matter much. I think Rob will agree with that.

P.S. I just can not imagine something less than 185 cm in the evening, especially with his amazing posture. He is an ideal challenger for the 6'1 mark, unlike Henry Cavill, Stephen Amell, 50 Cent, Drake, Jensen Ackles, Grant Gustin, Eric Olsen and others ...
Zampo said on 7/Nov/18

Solely from the photo, I think he looks about 6'1.25 (with the footwear advantage). So near enough 6'1 barefoot to me. I had a look at my previous post and I still agree with my summary although the only thing I would adjust is that is his head is slightly tilted up. So I think 6'0 7/8 is more likely than a 6'1 1/8 measurement. 185 cm suits him well.
Andrea said on 6/Nov/18
It's funny that so many people think that this guy is at least 6'1 (or even over), based on this photo, when he actually looks no more than 184-5 here, once you take into account his footwear advantage...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Oct/18
This guy, Ronaldo, a prime Costner and Luke Mitchell would all hold 6ft1 at the end of the day
Sakz said on 9/Oct/18
@6'4 Just goes to show how tall a real 6'1 guy can look. Next to Rob he even looks over the mark especially as he's standing quite well compared to other 6'1 guys on the site.
6'4 said on 9/Oct/18
tallest looking 6'1 guy ever. without rob for comparison, and by himself just judging from his proportions and general appearance, the guy looks 6'4...
Zampo said on 17/Sep/18
I'm quite confident Gatiss would measure about 6'1-6'1 1/8 in the afternoon. Let's say about 6'1 1/8 (185.7 cm) at lunchtime. He seems a solid 6'1 based on this photo. Average guess is a little too high. This is a decent photo to assess height as both him an Rob are standing decent.
QM6'1QM said on 12/Jul/18
Rob, I have a question, 189 cm guy would be where the canvas ends / the back blue background ?

P.S. I hope you understand this question :).
Editor Rob
Very close to the top of it.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jun/18
The height chart not that reliable. Gatiss is only 6'0 7/8 by looking at it but knowing Rob was 5'8 1/8 at low then Gatiss is a legit 6'1 before bed.
Tunman said on 12/Jun/18
All right Rob,something is really wrong here.The head of this guy is only 8.75 max (if you don't include hair) and his head isn't tilted up.It seems he's too far from the camera compared to you.
I think most pics don't reflect the truth about height.I assume you put them more to suggest that you met the celebs in question?I just trust your judgements if you meet celebs,well I wouldn't argue much more than a fraction anyways.
Editor Rob
Relative to the camera it's tilted up more than mine. He has kept his head straight ahead and not tilted it down, I have a slight lower of mine, but from the camera's height which is closer to 5ft, his is more tilted up.

For someone like Gwendoline, she has tilted her eyes down at least half inch while I am looking straight ahead...

You can see the 186 and 187 guys heads Beside Mine to see they can look smaller like Gatiss can. At 5ft 8 my head is longer than average.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 22/May/18

I disagree. 6'1 1/8" and 6'1 7/8" is visually indistinguishable from 6'1" and 6'2" respectively. I'd define "strong 6'1"" as 6'1 1/4"-3/8" and "weak 6'2"" as 6'1 5/8"-3/4".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/18
6ft1⅛(185.7cm) - strong 6ft1
6ft1⅜(186.4cm) - weak 6ft1½
6ft1⅝(187cm) - strong 6ft1½
6ft1⅞(187.6cm) - weak 6ft2

Being ¼in above or below a given mark shouldn't really be labelled "strong or "weak", IMO
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/18
This guy, Ronaldo, Mitchell and Costner (peak) deserve 6ft1⅛

Strong 6ft1 , like cristiano Ronaldo

Rob, Gatiss really deserves to be the first guy on your website with a range of 6'1" and 1/8 of an inch. Please, Rob, look, Andrew Scott looks very shortly next to him: Click Here
Click Here
Please, Rob, look also at the group photo which is a great argument: Click Here
Please, Rob, give him 1/8 of an inch over 6'1".

6'1 1/8 during the day. 185.4 cm at probably his absolute lowest. As strong a 6'1 as Rob is a 5'8.
Ali183 said on 2/Apr/18
A perfect definition of 185 cm. Solid height, just perfect!
Gracian said on 25/Mar/18
It always looks much higher than Cumberbatch. Rob, I think Gatiss can really be the first man on your website that will be listed as 6'1" and 1/8 inch.
Editor Rob
He has a chance of measuring it...
JJJ said on 6/Mar/18
He seems taller than 6'1 considering his mouth nearly reaches Rob's hairline?

Looks even a hair over 6'1. Solid 6'1 that he is.

Rob, you said 6'1" and 1/8 inch is possible for Gatiss. Here's Gatiss with Cumberbatch: Click Here Special + / zD6q3nxlQxF
Between them, the difference is very visible and often looks almost 2 inches wide. Please, Rob, give him a 1/8 inch upgrade, then the difference between them will look more real.

I think he's as tall as I am (187.3-6 cm in the morning).
Real 6'1" guy!

I give him 6ft1⅛(185.7cm)
Jake said on 4/Jan/18
His eye level seems to be that of a person in the 6ft 1.5 range! Wouldn't you agree, Rob?
Editor Rob
he's holding a pretty 'look straight ahead' look, would look different if he lowered eyes a cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/17
Rob, who do you think would measure taller this guy or Ronaldo?

I definitely think that'd be a toughie...
Editor Rob
within 1/8th of an inch...I suppose if you measured both at 9-10am they are going to be clearing the 6ft 1 mark by a fraction.
Anonymous said on 17/Dec/17
Rob he has a very small head.
Editor Rob
not really, just because he is holding it slightly higher (not looking down as much) it shortens the length a little...
Slim 186 said on 14/Dec/17
You should add Ian Hallard, he’s Mark Gatiss husband.
Slim 186 said on 13/Dec/17
@Rampage, Tennant and Amell are 184 guys wether as Costner and Gatiss are more 185-186, which is a much more desirable height imho.

But yeah at 6’1” I’m tall and my thin frame gives 2 inches so at times I can look freakishly tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/17
Rob, how much would you say is between Gatiss and Amell?

It's most likely posture but looking at both photos Mark looks like he'd be near 2in taller! I highly doubt that's the case...
Editor Rob
in person mark is least looked taller up close, but then takeaway a decent fraction and they are not that far apart....but I would still say if you measured both of them there has to be at least 1/4 maybe 1/3rd between them.

Editor Rob: he's a smart guy from listening to his talk that day, seems a friendly guy too from what I seen.


He does look and sound like a wise man.

Slim, at first you were 181, then 182 (etc, and now you are already 186 cm ... What is it ?
Do you grow so fast ? :)

he is 6ft 1.25 give him a upgrade
Stuart said on 22/Nov/17
Even with the shoe advantage he looks over 6’1. Great posture btw.
Ben said on 21/Nov/17
FINALLY, this is what a true 6'1" guy looks like. I know that because two of my best friends were legit 6'1" not too long ago, now they are closer to 6'2", like 6'1.75". My eyelevel is a little bit under their mouth.
Slim 185 said on 20/Nov/17
Rob, who will win the stadiometre between Gatiss and Costner?
Editor Rob
I'd probably give a slight edge to Gatiss.
Ryan said on 19/Nov/17
Like another member said, Gatiss is crearly a full 6'1 or 6'1.25 but in this picture for one reason his eye and lips level are in the area of a 6'2 guy or a bit more (in comparison with David Tennat, Andrew Rothenberg, Colin Hoult, Roger Cross, Judge Reinhold, Paul Young, etc) However his head still in the 6'1/6'1.25 area. Maybe that is for the posture of Mark or because he stretched his neck, but it confuses me anyway. Could you clear my doubts Robb?
Editor Rob
his head size is about 2cm smaller than mine in that photo, mainly because he is looking straight ahead not down at camera which would lower his eyes/chin.
Slim 185 said on 10/Nov/17
And also don’t forgot mark has thinning/ little hair left and Ben has a head full of hair and that’s maybe why ben can look taller and mark can look shorter:

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/17
I don't know about there being a full 2in between Benedict and Mark...
Mark Gatiss is 10 years bens senior being 51 years old. Mark Gatiss has probably lost a quarter inch now, but 30 year old mark and Ben would be 2 inches apart. Imo of course.

That last Anonymous message appears to be mine, i don't know how it automatically switched to that and back again, it might be due to the various browsers.

He’s definitely 186 CM.
Anonymous said on 7/Nov/17
6'1 is a decent listing for Gatiss. Taking footwear in to account, Gatiss would measure some where between 6'0.5-6.0.75. at his lowest. There would be around ~ 4.5-inches between Rob and Gatiss barefooted.
TheManWithNoName said on 5/Nov/17

Why is it that on most guys in the 6'0.75" to 6'1" range the 5'6" mark falls around the tip of the nose, yet with Gatiss it falls around the mouth? Is it simply the proportions of his face/head, the angle of the camera, etc.? Or is Gatiss slightly taller than 6'1"?
Editor Rob
his head isn't much over 9 inches in this photo, so naturally 7 inches would be closer to a mouth. I'd say he tilted slightly upwards reducing his head size a fraction.

For comparison, this guy is 6ft 1.25 Click Here, you can see too that his head size can look nearly an inch smaller than mine in a photo.

Of course he has an average head size.
Junior said on 30/Oct/17
@Slim 6' @Rampage(-_-_-)Clover

Cumberbatch is more like 181cm flat than 182cm and Gatiss might be someone who hold a strong fraction over 185cm at lowest range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Oct/17
I think Benedict is 5ft11½ at worst but Gatiss at just over 6ft1 is a strong possibility
Slim 6' said on 17/Oct/17
Mark Gatiss has 4.5 cms on benedict Cumberbatch at a minimum.

This would make ben 5'11.25" or mark 6'1.25".
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 13/Oct/17
Rob, would you be surprised if he measured a mm over 6’1”?
Editor Rob
1/8th over? Yeah it's possible.
Slim 6' said on 5/Oct/17
Deserves 6'1.5"(186 area) tbh.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 16/Sep/17
This guy has to be the strongest 6'1" person Rob met (other than Luke Mitchell and Roger Cross, both who are also strong 6'1"ers like Mark Gatiss.)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/17
Out of bed: 187.9cm
Before bed: 185.8cm
Slim183 said on 21/Aug/17
Great listing, he looks 186 range in the pic tbh, I'd contemplate an upgrade. And it would make more sense gatiss being 186 and cumberbatch being 181
@6'1.5 said on 17/Aug/17
187.7 cm in the morning.
185.5-7 cm at the night.
Real strong 6'1" guy.
Slim183 said on 17/Aug/17
Adijos, that's because ben is more 5'11.
Adijos said on 15/Aug/17
@Editor Rob: Unfortunately Cumberbatch looks next to him about 2 inches shorter. I think 186 cm would be honest to him.
Slim 182 cm said on 14/Aug/17
Wow, just proves how tall 6'1" really is, he towers rob for sure. I think his listing is around where he measures up at.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/17
I've no doubt that people think this guy is 6ft3. That's how undermined 6ft1 is as a formidable height
Rory said on 31/Jul/17
I do think we overstate this guys height a little, many seem to think he's 186cm but what you have to remember is he looks 6ft1 flat with Rob as the lines demonstrate and that's standing with measurement posture AND 0.3 inch more footwear. So I don't think over 6ft1 is that persuasive.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/17
187.9cm out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/17
Rob, would 6ft2 out of bed be possible for guy like Gatiss or Mitchell?
Editor Rob
yes it's very likely they could hit 6ft 2 mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Feb/17
You could make an argument for 6ft1¼(186cm). Really does look just about 2in taller than Cumberbatch who is struggling to look over 5ft11½ w/h Rob. I used to think he was a strong 6ft standing with Martin Freeman!
Revan said on 5/Feb/17
His posture is admirable and perfect even many people at his age lose a little of height because they neglect their posture but Mark no appear to lose anything. Looks like a strong 6'1 and maybe more tall but that is because his posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/17
Out of bed: 6ft1⅞(187.6cm)
Before bed: 6ft1⅛(185.7cm)

S.J.H said on 15/Jan/17
Rob, i might be wrong but could mark gatiss be 186cm in person?
Editor Rob
always a chance of a little over 6ft 1, but I think he has to be roughly around that 6ft 1 on the nose.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 26/Dec/16
Rob, could Gatiss fall into 'As tall as he claims category' without question?
Editor Rob
well Mark, I would say he was right around 6ft 1.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 26/Dec/16
6'1" is the absolute lowest I will argue. 6'1.25" is a good shout for this guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/16
He looks like a guy who drops to 6ft1 flat after a long day.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 22/Nov/16
Also, 6'1.25" is another arguable height for this guy
Mark(5'9.25") said on 22/Nov/16
A real 6'1"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/16
Out of bed: 187-188cm
Before bed: 185-186cm

This is a fair listing but a fraction over could also be argued...
S.J.H said on 11/Nov/16
I agree with rampage. I've check on Gatiss more and he even push to look over 2" taller than Cumberbatch. He can look 6'1.5 and doesn't look 0.75 shorter than 6'1.75 tom hiddleston. He might be 6'1.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/16
Can look 2in taller than Cumberbatch. Minimum 185.5cm.
S.J.H said on 9/Nov/16
He look 3-3.5cm taller than benedict cumberbatch. Solid 6'1 like eric dane
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/16
Rob, which of these would you go for?

A) 188.5cm/186.5cm
B) 188cm/186cm
C) 187.5cm/185.5cm
D) 187cm/185cm
E) 186.5cm/184.5cm
Editor Rob
around C range, he probably could be a little over it when sitting down for lunch.
Paleman said on 13/Oct/16
He's definitely looking every bit of 185 centimeters there... Wouldn't be surprised if he was even taller, like 186cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/16
Solid 185/186cm
Johno said on 3/May/16
The super-imposed height helps, judging by that, the top of his hair just about hits the 6'1 mark, then take away the shoe advantage. Definently a weak 6'1, maybe more a 6'0.5 at his lowest.
Crane said on 1/May/16
Pass for a true 6'1.
Alex said on 27/Apr/16
Wow this guy has perfect posture lol
Andrea said on 18/Apr/16
In the "mugshot" he looks more a weak 6'1 but 6'1 is still a good shout! He did have a small part in GOT and he looked pretty tall...
He isn't over this mark, though!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Apr/16
He's one of the very few honest 6ft1 guys. He looks every bit the height he claims and then some. He could probably get away with claiming 6ft2 but he doesn't. The others I can think of are Josh Holloway and Tim Henman.
Rory said on 16/Apr/16
Ive no idea why youd think he was under 6'1..based on the pic he looks near 6'2...slight deduction for posture and footwear advantage and he's 6'1..I couldn't buy this guy at under 185cm.
James B said on 15/Apr/16
6'0.75 if he had slightly more shoe
Johno said on 15/Apr/16
6'1 in the morning.
Johno said on 15/Apr/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/16
Similar appearance to Nathan Fillion and Chaske Spencer, both legit 6ft1½ guys. Looks near 1in taller than David Tennant does w/h Rob and possibly 2in taller then Cumberbatch. A very tall looking 6ft1 guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/16
He reminds me of a younger Jim Broadbent.
Aza said on 17/Mar/16
Agree with Rampage. Looks a weak 74 inches in photo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
He looks like he might have 2in on Benedict Cumberbatch
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/16
He looks a weak 6ft2 w/h Rob but might have a shoe advantage. Not under 6ft1 for sure though.
NBAer said on 5/Mar/16
At first glance,i thought this guy was a legit 187-188,but with a fraction more footwear,i'd guess 186cm is fairer...Apparently,he doesn't care about fractions,so just goes with 6'1...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/16
I think he could be 186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/16
"Mark Gatiss's height is 6ft 1¼in (186cm)"

Has near 2in on Cumberbatch.
181cm Lift Wearer said on 17/Dec/15
Rob, do you think that Mark might have been wearing lifts when you met him that day? Because I don't see him any under 187cm in this photo. But in all other photo's he generally looks 185cm.
Rory said on 1/Dec/15
can look near 6ft2, but, excellent posture and footwear advantage aside and hes just a solid 6ft1.
gian92 said on 23/Nov/15
in this photo i see a 6'2 !
TJE said on 23/Nov/15
I remember seeing him on last season of Game of Thrones walking with Roger Ashton Griffiths. I estimated Griffiths to be 5'8.5; comparing him with Charles Dance.

Long story short, Mark looked 4.5 inches taller than Griffiths.
MaskDeMasque said on 21/Nov/15
Looks 6'1 on The League of Gentlemen. Probably worth adding that to his bio Rob.
Allie said on 16/Nov/15
I'd guess 186-187 from this picture but he has a slight footwear advantage so 6'1 seems right.
seb1.91 said on 16/Nov/15
Small head yeah, but look at his shoulders his eyeline comparing with the top of your head and his posture in general, he look inc. Taller than you even whit that diference.
andrew said on 16/Nov/15
i see more than 185 but he stand straight
Nils said on 14/Nov/15
appears 6'1.5 range in pic
0.3 footwear advantage, good posture and quite small head
honest 6'1!

hei s ****ing huge here 2 i pol metra

Looks 6'1.25 or so but with small footwear advantage. So 6'1 flat is good. Guy def has very good posture which could make him look taller in general
Hypado said on 14/Nov/15
Mark Gatiss Height is 6ft 1in (185 cm)

a very great writer.

He looks a solid 6'1, take away the fraction for more footwear and he is not over 6'1!

great actor. He is perfect in Sherlock.

6'0.75 to 6'1 range in out of picture with rob
TJE said on 12/Nov/15
Seems he's tilting his head slightly up.

Rob, how big do you reckon his eye level is? Looks under average for a 6'1 guy.
Editor Rob
I think it would be average range really. In person he generally holds himself quite well.
Big C said on 12/Nov/15
Defo looks closer to 6'2 than 1 in this pic, i might be fooled by the camera angle though or the footwear of course, how tall is the photographer Rob? The guy or girl who took this pic?
Editor Rob
in person he didn't look as tall as a legit 6ft 1.5 like Big A looks to me up close.
Mr175 said on 12/Nov/15
@rob you should add league of gentlemen to his credits. What a show!
Sam said on 12/Nov/15
I would say that the difference between him and Cumberbatch looks realistic in the range of 1.25-1.5 inches.
184.3cm (Night) said on 12/Nov/15
Solid 6'1 in pic but has more footwear, probably around 6'1 flat barefoot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/15
Well, he puts Benedict Cumberbatch at 182cm max. Watching Sherlock he can actually appear near 2in taller at times
Big C said on 11/Nov/15
Rob could 6ft 1.25 (186cm) be possible for Mark if you say he looked a strong 6ft 1?
Editor Rob
I'd say he was more similar to height challenger 2 up close than challenger 8, but as I say with a fraction more footwear I'd put him at 6ft 1 range.
Big C said on 11/Nov/15
Rob could 6ft 1.25 (186cm) be possible for Mark if you say he looked a strong 6ft 1?
Editor Rob
I'd say he is as he says, an honest 6ft 1, he looked similar to challenger 2, but as I say he has more shoe than me, so I buy him as nearer 6ft 1 flat than above. Although you can't rule small fractions out :)
Big C said on 11/Nov/15
Rob could this guy be 186cm?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/15
I'm not kidding. He looks 6ft1-2 w/h Rob.
Editor Rob
he looked a strong 6ft 1 range to me, but had a fraction more shoes so I can believe him around 6ft 1 flat.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/15
Looks a strong 6ft1 w/h Rob

I've never seen or heard of this guy before but yeah he seems like a solid 6'1 here but looks more like 6'2 in the pic with the footwear, hes a tall guy.

I'm not familiar with this actor, but on this photo- easily 6'1
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 10/Nov/15

Yeah, looks a solid 6'1" guy to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
He can look 1in+ taller than Ben on Sherlock.
cole said on 29/Aug/13
He makes Cumberbatch look more 182 cm range imo, and I think that's a fair shout for him.
