How tall is Peter Davison

Peter Davison's Height

5ft 11 (180.3 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 0 (182.9 cm)
British actor best known for his role as The Fifth Doctor in BBC's long-running tv show Doctor Who. He also had a memorable role in the tv series All Creatures Great and Small. On agency resume he is listed 185cm, although in person I think he looked nearer 5ft 11 and has lost an inch of height since the 1980's.

He looks rather 5 ft 10 than 11
Victor Surratt said on 24/Jan/17
Weak 1.82 in the second picture, at his peak he probably could be 1.84.
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
He even look 5'10 + with jenny and rob
Peter 179cm said on 17/Jul/16
No more than 180cm,could even be as low as 179-180 range like 179.5cm.

Could look near 6ft1 at times...Definitely not under 6ft peak
Jakob said on 17/Oct/14
In his younger days, he looked a strong 6ft, maybe even 6'1".
James B said on 9/Jun/14
He's lost more than average for his age
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/14
The 185cm isn't his claim, I don't think
[Editor Rob: it was on his resume, so I'd say it was, he's definitely shifted height over the 50-60 age period.]

First met peter in 1986 he was 6 1 spot on only had trainers on. Met him last year and I would say he was 6 feet as he as aged a little which is to be exspected.
Yaspaa said on 11/Sep/13
He's lost 4cm...? More like he's always been 5'11.
wiltonstilts said on 1/Sep/13
Weak 5 '11 if that
Billy said on 27/Aug/13
I think 6' and a half in his youth is reliable.
Alexandra said on 6/Jun/13
I interviewed him in February, stood next to him and sat talking to him for half an hour. I'd say 5-11 is right on. He's not a big guy at all, actually is much more delicate in person than he looks on screen or in photographs. People do get shorter with age and it's possible he was a legitimate 6 feet in his youth.
LG69 said on 5/Jun/13
Peter looks to be a solid 5'11"...maybe a bit more. Rob is Peter a relatively big guy in person? He looks about 190-200 lbs.
[Editor Rob: he might be that range, but he's certainly nowhere near his 6ft 1 claim, a guy I know who was 5ft 11.5 was taller than him that day...]

greetings Rob,
i would like you to help me in determining how a person standing by a 6'3.5 guy and reaching him above is eye level would be in height. my friend who is 6'3.5 had an arguement with his friend who claim to be 6'2 about his height.
can you plsss help me in determing how tall his friend who claim to be 6'2 is since they both are almost at the same height level and to me there is upto two inches difference in their height.
thanks a lot Rob .i remain one of your best (celebheights.com) visitor and contributor
[Editor Rob: say if the top of your friends head was up to the hairline of your other friend (if he has hair) it's possible he is near 6ft 2.]
ChiasmataX said on 22/Nov/11
Accurate listing considered that the eye-level of a 178cm guy go across the middle of the forehead of a legit 173cm person in pictures.
Lenad is sexy said on 10/Sep/11
looks 179cm in the left pic. 3-3.5 inches taller than rob in the right
Hansen said on 15/Aug/11
1st picture davison looks 179cm, 2nd looks 180cm. 180cm was pretty accurate given
dmeyer said on 7/Jul/11
looks 5 ft 10.5 near rob but near jenny 5 ft 11 in the double shot , in the the single looks solid 5 ft 11 , rob do you agree he is solid 5 ft 11 he seems taller than most 5 ft 10.5 11 guys you have pics with
[Editor Rob: 2 years ago he didn't look over 5ft 11 to me]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/May/11
Looks 5"10 range in both pictures
James said on 28/Feb/11
Yeah his hairdo adds 1 inch to his height
James said on 24/Feb/11
Rob do you really think he was 184cm at his peak or do you think that is inflated becasue in the pic with you he really does not look over the 177cm mark.

[Editor Rob: nah James, he can't look, at least in that double shot Less than 178.5cm.

What's interesting to me, imagine he had more hair covering the front of his head so you couldn't see the top of his head, but similar style...That's like 1 and a bit inches of hair! That's not even as big as someone like Joe Flanigan's hairdo, which is no less than 1.5 inches!]
James said on 22/Feb/11
really does not look over 177cm in the left pic with rob.

[Editor Rob: he's lost height from his peak I'm certain. I mean with David Tennant he has been shorter, they were in a period drama of some sorts a few years back, at least Tennant looks his claimed height.]

5'11 looks about right.
James said on 16/Jan/11
he's still tallish at 5'11.

Actually depending on footware in the new pic with rob he really looks no more than 5ft10 (178cm) or 5ft10.5 (179cm) at best. in the older pic as well looks 5'10 range.
Joe said on 11/Jan/11
there is no way someone in his late 50's could have lost 4 inches of height, especially as he's an actor. he looks about 6'0 dead on. maybe a little shorter without the shoes
dmeyer said on 2/Dec/10
dosnt look over 5 ft 11 maybe 11.25 with you
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/10
5"11(180cm) tops these days.

Probably 5"11.75(182cm) peak
HML said on 11/Jun/09
Ah, here's the link with Sarah's height:

I wonder how accurate it is...she did always seem smallish.
HML said on 11/Jun/09
I recently read that Sarah Sutton is 5'1"...perhaps it should be easier to compare now?
random person said on 5/Jan/09
he was standing tall over evryone in all creatures great and small!
cary said on 18/Dec/08
I first met Peter back in the 80s in Chicago at a big Dr. Who convention...I am exactly 6 feet and he was a bit taller, so I'm guessing 6.1 or 6.2 easily. Saw him again last year backstage at Spamalot and he didn't seem shorter to me. MUCH heavier though, I think the weight probably makes him look a bit shorter in photographs. Note too, I met Colin Baker in Chicago as well and he was a bit shorter than I expected.

hey looks 5,10.5

[Editor Rob: he's not that short, but of course in that photo that's not how a 6ft man looks against 5ft 8...

Look at the 5ft 8 mark against this legit 6ft man ;)

Here.]
Joe said on 28/Aug/08
He looks about 6'0.
Hugh said on 28/Aug/08
Looks a solid 6ft. 6ft0.5 was his peak. Broad guys like himself are almost always at least 6ft.
badboy4 said on 15/Aug/08
how tall is mathew waterhouse nd janet feeding and sarah sutton

[Editor Rob: I don't know but I've got a photo with Davison and I think he's struggling with 6ft...as his little 10 minute clip with David Tennant showed...]
Editor Rob said on 7/Sep/06
also quoted himself, 2001 mirror "I'm 6ft 1in and quite broad-shouldered so people don't notice"
