Episode S7 was broadcast on 3 September 2003, as a special episode.

The contestants were Scrabble experts Brett Smitheram and Harshan Lamabadusuriya, with Harshan Lamabadusuriya winning 101 – 87. The Dictionary Corner guest was Richard Stilgoe, and the lexicographer was Damian Eadie.

NOTE: In Round 4, Smitheram's declaration of MUSTERER should have been allowed, as MUSTERER is in the NODE. This error did not affect the outcome of the game, although the final score should have been 101-95 in Lamabadusuriya's favour, rather than 101-87.
