Episode 4961 was broadcast on 20 January 2010, as part of Series 62.

Oliver Garner played Daphne Lord, with Oliver Garner winning 91 – 67. The Dictionary Corner guest was John Stapleton, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: There is doubt as to whether Daphne declared COASTED or the invalid word TOASTED in round 12. Even if her declaration had been disallowed, it would not have affected the outcome of the game, nor Oliver's overall points total.
