There's no need to treat Mary (Patti Clare) like that you great big lummox! 😝 She's nice and she's funny, which is more than can be said for you! 🖕

The episode of 'A Touch of Frost' is on right now. It's called 'House Calls' and Peter plays a retarded fellow called Sidney Snell, who breaks into family homes and injects small children....with water. 😣💦 Snell genuinely believes he is helping the kids, and Inspector Frost is worried that he would suffer abuse at the mercy of the other prisoners if he was locked up again, having previously served four years for the same crime, and been beaten up.
⭐ A hyperdermic needle in the hands of a novice is extremely dangerous, regardless of what it contains.
Now's about the best opportunity I'm going to get to size Peter up at his optimum height, but he hasn't appeared as yet, so I'll wait until he does.
Aha - he's being visited by David Jason's Frost now, and in all honesty, the only thing that looks any different is Peter's thicker and browner hair!
Five eleven and a half. 😁👍

@ Christian 6'5 3/8" - How tall do you think Peter is?

181cm at his peak

@ Nik - A touch under 6ft, say half-an-inch.

Many people might think that calcium is the most important nutrient in maintaining height, but you may be right. If the muscles become weak, then the bones follow.

He’s a tricky one. I think his posture varies at times, he does look as listed with those much shorter cast members in that linked photo. I could perhaps buy 5’11.5 as a peak height given his age.

@ Sandy Cowell - What do you think is his nowadays height?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Dec/19
Mind you, I don't think there's the possibility that he has starved himself.
Seriously, that DOES help prevent height loss, especially if your choice of foods is the high protein variety.
Brian starred in one of the first ever 'A Touch of Frost' episodes. He played a fellow with learning difficulties. Little did we know that a few years later, Peter would be playing a head teacher in 'Coronation Street'!

@ Nik and CD - I think he was in his younger days. He's nearly 57 now so could well have lost some height.

He could well be 5ft 11.5. He looks around seven inches taller than the Chesney actor Sam Aston who you have listed as 5ft 5.25
6ft I think is too high, but 5ft 11 flat I am not so sure, 5ft 11.25 or 11.5 was my thought on him.

@ CD - Yes, he could easily be around the 5’11” (180 cm) mark, he doesn’t give me the impression of being nearly 6’0” either!

Five eleven flat I think is closer, compared to someone like Alan Halsall from Corrie who is 5ft 6, he doesn’t give the impression of being almost 6ft.

Probably heavier than 98kg in that picture. Around 105kg seems a bit more likely.

It’s great that Peter has been given his well deserved page but I have got to say I expected him to be a little bit under 5’11.5”!
