Episode 609 was broadcast on 10 July 1987, as part of Series 13.

Hilary Hopper played Robert Randall, with Robert Randall winning 60 – 50. The Dictionary Corner guest was Russell Harty, and the lexicographer was Catherine Clarke.

NOTE: Hopper's declaration of ENTRAIL in round 6 should have been disallowed, as only the plural ENTRAILS is listed in COD7 (although more recent editions of the COD list ENTRAIL as a verb, meaning to entangle a fold). Under COD7 rules, the final score should have been 60 – 43.
