Do you think Motty's comment is legit, Rob? (since you gave him another 1/4 inch, I guess so πŸ™‚)
Editor Rob
I looked at him with a few more folk I met and maybe out of bed he can get that measurement.

@Motty If what you said is true, that he is 5ft 10.5 first thing. Then yeah, 5ft 9.75-5ft 10 listing is looking ok.

I measured Ncuti Gatwa for his costume fitting and barefoot he is 179cm tall according to our stadiometer this was incredibly early in the morning

I appreciate the classic elaborate answer, Rob, but then you're saying there's at least 2 inches between them anyway...??
For sure, it looks like to me he's noticeably closer to Capaldi than a Ryan Seacrest! Click Here
So if not 5'10, I'd now say at least 5'9.75 (which makes more sense with how he can look with Asa too).
Editor Rob
Capaldi likely lost a fraction by 64 now, but yeah I can see the argument he pulls off 5ft 10 at times, 9.5 might be the lowest.
Andrea said on 29/Jan/23
Rob, have you seen him with Capaldi? Click Here Click Here (here with Brian Cox too Click Here )
As I've said before, this guy can really seem more 5'10 than 5'9, arguably a strong 5'10 if Capaldi is 5'11.5 there in fact! Surely even 5'9.25 is too low for him???
Editor Rob
5ft 9.5 could be quite possible.

The FIFTEENTH Doctor Who? My word, they haven’t half been mounting up over the years!

5ft9.25. Ha ha - that was my guess without even looking! πŸ˜€

The new Doctor!

Can't believe some people on here thought he was 5ft 7. No way is he that short. I thought he held up well beside asa butterfield who is 6 foot. So maybe even 5ft 9.5 for ncuti

Ncuti is 5’9” at least and Emma is 5’7” at most!
Andrea said on 30/Dec/21
Really only 5'9 flat, Rob?? From looking at premiere photos, I can see how the difference can look bigger at times, but I thought this is what he can typically look with Asa on the show: Click Here
I mean, unless Asa is more 5'11 than 6', if anything I'd have said nearer 5'10 than 5'9 for Ncuti...
Maybe 2.5 inches isn't unfeasible, but 3 big inches? Hmm...
What about something like 5'9.25? Ultimately, Asa could fall a bit under 6' and Ncuti a bit over 5'9, but 5'9 vs 6' just looks too much a difference from what I've seen!
Editor Rob

5ft 9.25 could be fairer

5'9 flat and when i met him i was taller, seeing people say 'he looks taller' is such a confidence boost
Jawilder said on 29/Dec/21
5’9.75”. Might even be the 5’10 flat from everything I’ve seen.
Crab said on 29/Dec/21
He holds up seriously well next to Asa on Sex Education, at times I would have guessed him as high as 5’11, but since it’s a TV show it’s impossible to really know how legit that is. I’d give him a strong 5’9 at least.
Stefkat said on 29/Dec/21
Rob if Ncuti was barefoot would Emma in those heels in the pic above be taller than him?
Editor Rob
She should be.

How tall do you think his co-star Kedar Williams Stirling is? Some pictures they look about the same height but in others Ncuti is clearly taller than him.

Editor Rob
Could be a greater chance of Ncuti over 5ft 9 than Kedar
TJE said on 27/Dec/21
He consistently looks 5'9.5 next to Asa.
Getlikes666 said on 27/Dec/21
A lot of websites have Ncuti listed as 5’8 or 5’7. He looks like a strong 5’9 to me. But at times he appears a lot taller than he looks especially next to his co-star Asa Butterfield, who you have listed as 6’0. I hope you do more cast members from Sex Education.

Looks to have good posture at times, but yeah I wouldn't go under 5ft 9
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Dec/21
I've heard about 'Sex Education' but never so far seen it, so I don't even know if it's a comedy!

Ncuti gets 5ft9. πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ
