5 foot 4
Editor Rob: today he is down to 5ft 4, but in the 80's looked over 5ft 5.

He looks around 5 ft 2 or 3 with you, but he can look even 5 ft 5 with Jenny.

Why does Judy look taller than Jenny compared to Sylvester?
it can sometimes just be a photographer's position or the angle they hold the camera which can enhance or reduce differences a little bit.
you can on the day Judy and myself had a photo with Sylvester, how she looks beside Jenny in reality: Click Here
, both in pretty similar sneakers.

He looks to have very bad posture next to you. Only up straight I'd buy 5'4. However, he looks 5'5 next to Jenny (old picture maybe?)
[Editor Rob: he's 5ft 4 range today, there was a 5ft 4 kid with us last year and he was roughly same as mccoy.]

sylvester told me he was 5'6 1/2". he might've been exaggerating though.

My photo with him here, similar footwear.

Doesn't look like he'd reach your eye level in the most recent pic Rob.
[Editor Rob: around 5ft 4 I think is fair, I watched him with 5ft 7 judy and her son (5ft 4) and he was roughly that mark.]

He does look like he's shrunk from his time as the Doctor. I know a bit off-topic, but I enjoyed him, he was an under-appreciated incarnation let down at times (like Colin Baker) with weaker storylines.

I thought I'd see him again and he was looking more a 5ft 4 guy, I put up another photo of him with me and one even of Jenny's 5ft 7 sister!

Rob, then how do you explain the height difference in your pic? Are you wearing 3 inch shoes or something?
[Editor Rob: look at Jenny's pic too, I don't think he's under 5ft 5 in that one]
said on 27/Jul/14
Rob, not sure how you can give him 5.5 considering that pic with you.
[Editor Rob: 5ft 5...last time I seen him up close a year ago I thought he could still look about 5ft 5]

Looks even 5'4.5" if we consider that Jenny is leaning her head a little.
[Editor Rob: he could be that mark today, I'm sure actually I had a supplement for Hobbit (maybe from a movie mag) and it had heights listed and he was down as 5ft 4.5 in it!
there's a slight fault in that photo, I think it moved when scanning a little, so her face is slightly not quite right :)]

Yes, he's not 5' 6". I'd say around 5' 4" now. The pratfalls have taken their toll. Still good fun though.

looks more like 5'3 to me, and it's funny because everyone else seems to be thinking the same thing. Maybe 5'5 in his prime?
