Episode 4848 was broadcast on 26 June 2009, as part of Series 61.

Innis Carson played Martyn Brewer, with Innis Carson winning 115 – 57. The Dictionary Corner guest was Tim Vine, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Brewer's offering of DOSIEST in round 13 should have been disallowed as it is not a valid word. This affects neither the outcome of the game nor Carson's points total, but Brewer's final score should have been 50, not 57.
