Episode 5091 was broadcast on 11 August 2010, as part of Series 63.

Tom Rowell played Andrew Mossford, with Tom Rowell winning 92 – 88. The Dictionary Corner guest was William Roache, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In round 3, Rowell's declaration of SAUTEE should have been disallowed as it isn't in the dictionary, so Mossford should have won the match 88 – 86. As a result, he was invited back to the show in the following series.
