Episode 3829 was broadcast on 2 December 2004, as part of Series 52.

Judith Armstrong played Tim Charlton, with Tim Charlton winning 111 – 69. The Dictionary Corner guest was Martin Jarvis, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Unusually, Carol Vorderman made a minor error in this game, which (presumably) went unnoticed at the time and appeared in the final edit. In the second round, Charlton asked for a final consonant but was given a vowel, U. The correct selection, GERTOPLAT, would not have yielded anything better.
