I saw Patrick starring in the 1964 film 'The Gorgon' last week, playing a detective. He is one of the fellows who showed Peter Cushing as the tall man that he actually was! All too often, next to Christopher Lee, also in the movie, and Vincent Price, Peter doesn't look quite so tall as he ought to!

Anyway, Patrick was fuller of face and noticeably younger in the film (43/44), but in my opinion, he was one of the many men who got better with age. He was one of my favourite Doctor Who incarnations ever and he was excellent in 'The 'Omen' as a preacher.

I agree that this father-of-six was 5ft7.5.

He is by no means average height as some think. Some whovians actually think him taller than William Hartnell which is doubtful. Next to Frazer Hines / Jamie (5ft 6) he is not much taller than him. Probably 5ft 6 1/2 when he was older and maybe 5ft 7 1/2 peak height.
