Episode 5685 was broadcast on 23 April 2013, as part of Series 68.

Jill Hayward played Pat Gardner, with Jill Hayward winning 104 – 63. The Dictionary Corner guest was Paul Zenon, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Notably, Gardner's declaration of TAXIES was originally disallowed, but after round 9, Susie checked the definition of the word, and found a misprint in the text, so she reversed the decision.
