Episode 3551 was broadcast on 23 September 2003, as part of Series 50.

Geoff Trinick played John Britton, with Geoff Trinick winning 72 – 69. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jennie Bond, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Britton's first round offering of RIGHTEST was later judged to have been wrongfully disallowed. As this would have changed the result in his favour by 77-72, he was invited back in Series 51, losing 100 – 68 to Nik Von Uexkull in Von Uexkull's sixth game.
