Episode S43 was a special episode broadcast on 6 April 2015, which featured 2 contestants who happen to be sisters.

Olivia Lloyd-Potts played Pauline Latham, with Pauline Latham winning 67 – 64. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gyles Brandreth, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode is notable for 2 reasons; firstly, it was broadcast over a year and a half after its original recording, during which the dictionary had changed from the paper to the online version, and secondly, the episode was broadcast at 6am, making the earliest broadcast for any episode of Countdown in its entire history.
