Episode 4954 was broadcast on 11 January 2010, as part of Series 62.

Jan Parker played Robert Kennedy, with Jan Parker winning 83 – 70. The Dictionary Corner guest was Brian Capron, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This was the first show of the 2010s.

A letter V appeared in Round 2, followed by two more in Round 7. This was the first time that any Vs had been seen since Episode 4918 almost three months earlier. This is also the only known game to have featured three Vs; extras were perhaps added to make up for the fact that the letter was absent during the previous three months.
