Episode 4287 was broadcast on 5 February 2007, as part of Series 56.

Paddy Izod played Eoin O'Connell, with Paddy Izod winning 94 – 63. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jeremy Hardy, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Notably, during round 3 it went unnoticed that only two vowels were present in the letters selection. This is against the rules of Countdown, which declare that there must be a minimum of three vowels per selection.
