Episode 6708 was broadcast on 13 November 2017, as part of Series 77.

Graeme Staples played Mike Brain, with Graeme Staples winning 85 – 60. The Dictionary Corner guest was Margaret Mountford, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Rounds 4 and 5, Brain was not asked to spell his word; therefore, he may have intended the words LODES and/or PRIED rather than LOADS and PRIDE.

The W on the conundrum solution board was in fact an upside-down M.
