Rob, will you be able to meet him in the future?
[Editor Rob: not sure really...I'd hope he does another event in the future.]

6ft peak, Rob?
[Editor Rob: it is possible he hasn't really lost much at all, he can still pull off almost 6ft.]

Can look 5ft 11 and 6ft so 11.5 seems right.
[Editor Rob: in Dr Who he can pull of nearer 6ft at times, but does have a pretty thick style of boot, maybe 1.3-1.4 inch types.]

I'd also point out that he seems to hold good posture, compared to a guy like Smith, who had terrible posture, and could look between 5'11 and 6ft.

Accounting for posture and footwear, I think Smith could edge him out, though it could be to close to call.

But hopefully Rob will get to meet him soon! :) $$$
[Editor Rob: he did an event a few months ago, smaller one and enjoyed it from what I heard, but it was charity kind of based, I saw a few photos with friends who got one...Peter actually can pull off 6ft with them, I was surprised!
No idea when he'll do one I go to...]

Wow, I say certainly a lot in my comments. I better dial back on that.

Click Here the best or most even photos, I grant you, but he certainly seems to measure up to confirmed 6'0 Benedict Cumberbatch in what appears to be equal footwear.

The only scene Capaldi shared with James Gandolfini in In The Loop had them both leaning over a table, making it a pretty bad shot for judging height. Compare to 6'0 David Rasche in the same movie, and he certainly looks 6'0, possibly 5'11.75. I don't know if he's lost any height these days, but I would certainly say he was 6'0 in most of his performances.

If you watch Local Hero he towers over everyone (admittedly short cast) until Burt Lancaster shows up and looks about 2-3 inches taller than Capaldi in the beach scene.

For me, Peter Capaldi is 181/182cm

Doesn't come off as being as tall as Matt. I'd give Matt 6'0" and Peter something like 5'11.25".

Major recent Sunday Times interview says he is only 5ft 9, and that's been repeated since in another interview, but this has to be wrong. Jenna Coleman is 5ft 2 and even with massive heels on she only comes up to his chin; he is definitely more than 7 inches taller than she is.

The NEW Doctor!

5ft11.5 is bang on Rob, thanks.
spike says on 11/Jan/14
Looks two inches shorter than weak 6'1 Gandolfini in "In the Loop".
cole says on 30/Dec/13
6ft seems accurate.
Anon says on 8/Aug/13
6 foot, maybe a bit more of an inch by looks of it.
Anon says on 1/Sep/12
I would have said he's possibly about 6ft from memory, and looking back at videos of him next to me and my friend. In the photo I have with him, he's about an inch taller than me I'd say (I'm 5'10), but I recall him crouching down a bit.
