Episode 6628 was broadcast on 21 July 2017, as part of Series 77.

John Cowen played Raf Seneviratne, with John Cowen winning 79 – 38. The Dictionary Corner guest was Chris Packham, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode marked Rachel Riley's 2,000th appearance as arithmetician, although the episode billed as Riley's 2,000th would not be transmitted until 23 November, due to the appearance count used for the latter excluding her appearances on the 8 out of 10 Cats Mash-ups.

NOTE: In Round 8, Cowen was not asked to spell his word, but since Rachel Riley displayed the word ADVISORS on the letters board following the round, this has been taken as his declaration here rather than ADVISERS.
