Episode 2693 was broadcast on 21 January 2000, as part of Series 42.

John Snedden played Amey Deshpande, with John Snedden winning 80 – 38. The Dictionary Corner guest was Joan Bakewell, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In this game, Snedden achieved a "flake" — two consecutive nine-letter word spots (named after the 99 Flake ice cream confection) — an extremely rare occurrence in a 9-round game. This was only the second time this had been accomplished, following Jill Bright's two opening words in her second show.
