Series 16 ran from June 1988 to September 1988. The sixteenth of 53 series presented by Richard Whiteley, it was won by Tony Vick. Notably, on her way to the quarter finals, Jenny Haldane compiled what is believed to be the first perfect game in the history of 9 round televised Countdown.

Series 16's finals stages contained the most upsets of any finals bracket ever, with six of the seven matches being won by the player with the lower seed.
