8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 7, Episode 11 was a special episode broadcast on 24 July 2015, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 7.

8 Out of 10 Cats regular Sean Lock and Acting Team captain Lee Mack were the contestants, along with Mel Giedroyc and David O'Doherty who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Lee Mack, with the assistance of David O'Doherty, winning by 35 – 34 in an 8-rounder and they won a Countdown tent.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician. The Dictionary Corner guest was Adam Buxton, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Just before Round 5, David introduced his smoke machine which emitted that from under the desk. Later when Sean was presenting the solution for Round 6, David pointed the machine at him without warning and blew it at him, causing much laughter.

In Round 2, the original large number was 100. However, as the target was not changed, it would not have affected the solution. In Round 6, the original target was 407 which could be easily done with 4 × 100 + 7. However, Jimmy wanting to test Mel's Maths ability ordered Rachel to press CECIL again for the eventual target of 327.

NOTE: In this version, both players' declarations were allowed, although points were only awarded for the best answer.
