Episode 4918 was broadcast on 30 October 2009, as part of Series 61.

John Dyer played Gordon Vaughan, with Gordon Vaughan winning 97 – 80. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jane Moore, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

The letter V that was selected in Round 1 was the last V to be chosen in all of Series 61; following its appearance here, it was apparently misplaced and was not seen again until the premiere of Series 62.
