Michie

Kenneth Michie was the runner-up of Series 31.

He was a headteacher from Hoy in the Orkney Isles of Scotland. He beat David Benson in his first appearance, and won a further 4 games, including a double tie-break conundrum against Sean Carey, before losing to Madeleine Evans. Michie returned for the final stages as #3 seed, and beat Peter Burt and Chris Williams in the quarter- and semi-finals respectively. The final against David Acton went right down to a crucial conundrum, but unfortunately for Michie, it was Acton who got there first, meaning Michie had to settle for second best on the day.

Michie returned in September 1996 for Championship of Champions VIII, and beat Chris Colsmann and Darren Shacklady on his way to the final, where Michie was comfortably beaten by Chris Rogers.

Michie would return to Countdown screens some years later for a special game, a rematch of his final against David Acton. Michie would emerge victorious on this occasion.
