Funnily enough, I remember fairly well watching him in 'Doctor Who', sometimes from behind a chair, when I was an ankle biter!

5ft8. 😃👍

Both Billy and Jon Pertwee feature in the film "Will any gentlemen? And when standing together the top of Billy's head just reaches Jon's eyeline, so I think 5' 8" is accurate.

Hartnell was only 1.71 m(5'7 1/2") or 1.68 m(5'6"). He's considerably small next to some of his co-stars in DW.
