Episode 6680 was broadcast on 4 October 2017, as part of Series 77.

Eoin Jackson played Dan Batten, with Eoin Jackson winning 94 – 64. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dr Phil Hammond, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 2, Jackson's offering of DEFAMOUS was disallowed by Dictionary Corner, despite the fact that it could be found in the Oxford Dictionary Online and was in fact this round's darrenic maximum-scoring word. This would not have affected the outcome of the game, but the final score should have been 102 – 59. The max for Round 2 has still been taken to be 8 here for purposes of max calculation.
