Episode 6713 was broadcast on 20 November 2017, as part of Series 77.

Graeme Staples played Beth Walker, with Graeme Staples winning 90 – 85. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gyles Brandreth, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

The conundrum in this episode proved to be controversial, as Rachel Riley commented after the round that Walker was a split second behind in buzzing. However, what was aired did not show her attempting to buzz in at all, indicating this was not the original take. The producers later clarified that Staples buzzed in first in the original recording and thus he would have won in any case. [1]
