Episode 6706 was broadcast on 9 November 2017, as part of Series 77.

James Riddell played William Thomson, with James Riddell winning 94 – 43. The Dictionary Corner guest was Margaret Mountford, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 11, Dictionary Corner did not note that Thomson's offering of RADAR was invalid, as there was only one A in the selection. However, this proved irrelevant as Riddell offered a longer word anyway.
