Ooh, nice one Rob! You've been photographed with three of the cast members of 'Quadrophenia'! Only Sting was even remotely tall in that film, and he isn't even 6ft, but he sure looked it next to everyone else!

Phil can have 5ft4.75. ๐Ÿ˜

Well, Bradly, John Thaw looks like a man of nearly 6ft if he is average! He isn't! He's little - and lovely! ๐Ÿ˜

Oh yes, he looks tiny in comparison to Inspector Morse actor John Thaw, written up as 5ft9 peak I'd say, but might be 5ft8 in what I am watching.

Next to Sergeant Lewis, he is towered! I remember him in 'Quadrophenia', and he was noted for his shrimpiness there. But his acting credits are HUGE!

I opt for 5ft5, though I did read somewhere that he was 5ft6. I don't believe it!

Quote: "People are always surprised at how short I am!"
Not really! Phil looked pretty tiny in 'Quadrophenia', which is the first thing I ever saw him in. From that film alone - late 70's - Phil didn't look more than 5ft5, perhaps half an inch more at a push!
But hasn't he proved himself? He's been in anything and everything of significance, Inspector Morse and other detective greats, blockbuster films and he's led whole casts to success, as in 'Whitechapel'! I think he's great and a prime example of a shorter 'hard man' type if ever there was one!
Today, Phil can have 5ft5. I reckon he's probably lost a bit by now, so that's quite generous!
Editor Rob: He's certainly been in an awful lot of TV and film over the years.

Yeah right that is more than a 3 inch difference
[Editor Rob: he isn't standing as good as me I think he looks taller than he is in the photo]

oh I see

why is there a page called fan pages rob? i don't get how it's different from just looking up celebrities alphabetically.
[Editor Rob: it is there so anybody can easily find all photos I have with celebrities and have the a-z pages with thumbnails.]

Surely he must be sub 5'3.5" considering that is Rob's eye level.
[Editor Rob: he's not quite that short, he is leaning against that wall, but he's definitely not 5ft 6 as he claims]

Whaaaat... I just watched "High Hopes" and he looked like 5 ft 9 at least. Maybe because of his beard. He's got a so great personality.
Anyway if I had to give an esteem based on this this pic, I'd say he's 5 ft 3 on a good day
[Editor Rob: he isn't quite that small but his five six claim is a bit high]

Rob, are you on an applebox? How can he be 5'5 if you're only 5'8? You absolutely tower over him!
haha said on 19/May/09
how can that guy claim 5'6"?
runt said on 3/Sep/08
If Phil straightens up he's eye-to-mouth with Rob which = 3". 5-5 it is.
Chopsy said on 13/Mar/08
He looks tiny next to Philip Glenister and he was on with Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer the other day and it struck me how tiny he was!
Eye Sea said on 28/Aug/06
He's taller than that. About 5 feet 8/9 I'd say. I met him, when I was working as an extra.
Editor Rob said on 5/Mar/06
Has on his CV, '5ft 8'.
