Episode 887 was broadcast on 4 August 1989, as part of Series 18.

Keith Pottage played Jonathan Anstey, with Jonathan Anstey winning 66 – 12. The Dictionary Corner guest was Eve Pollard, and the lexicographer was Simon Mason.

NOTE: In round 1, Anstey had MIRIER disallowed because it wasn't mentioned in the dictionary, but Simon Mason allowed LIMIER because LIMY is in the dictionary, but since MIRY is in the dictionary, MIRIER should have been allowed too. Therefore the final score should have been 72 – 7.
