Series 71 was the sixth regular series presented by Nick Hewer. Series 71 began on 30 June 2014 and ended on 19 December 2014. It was won by Dan McColm, who en route to the final, scored the first perfect game in the "new" 15-round format.

This series is also notable for the ODE3 being replaced by the Oxford Dictionary Online (ODO), and with Susie Dent now using a laptop computer in Dictionary Corner, in place of the usual paper dictionary.

Three new special episodes were broadcast at the end of the series, filling broadcasting gaps during and after the finals. These shows featured former contestants Bobby Banerjee, Bobby Johnson, Priscilla Munday, Eileen Taylor, Michael McDowell and Duncan McGregor.

McColm, Ryan and Ford all later returned for Championship of Champions XIV.

Since Series 64, players are sorted by number of wins then by number of points. Points from both wins and losses count. Points from sudden death conundrums aren't counted, and players with the same number of wins and points are sorted by the number of conundrums correctly guessed, then highest individual score.
