Series 23 ran from December 1991 to March 1992. The twenty-third of 53 series presented by Richard Whiteley was won by Gareth Williams.

Series 23, 25, 45, 63 and 68 are the only series in which the finals went completely true to the seedings (i.e., the higher seed always beat the lower seed, with no upsets).

Rank Name Wins Score
1 Gareth Williams 8 436
2 Phil Jordan 8 425

5 Michael Woods 3 227
6 Neil Rowley 3 182
7 Rodney Crawshaw 3 170
8 Glen Webb 2 166

NOTE: Fiona Davies, who would have appeared as fifth seed with 274 points, was unable to attend the finals and instead was given a special playoff against the next series' eighth seed, Maureen Grabham, and went on to reach the Grand Final of that series. For the finals of this series, she was replaced by two-time winner Glen Webb. Also, Gareth Williams was awarded seven bonus points after Dictionary Corner had wrongly disallowed ELITIST in one of his heats, although the seedings were unaffected.

Points totals include winning, losing and drawing scores. Players ranked by total number of points.
