Series 38 ran from December 1997 to June 1998, and began with Championship of Champions IX. The thirty-eighth of 53 series presented by Richard Whiteley, it was won by John Ashmore.

Series 38 was the first series to run for 6 months rather than the previously standard 3 months.

Richard Whiteley also revealed in the first episode of this series that, due to the series being extended in length from three to six months, the number of games won would, from this series onwards, take precedence over the number of points scored in terms of the seed table for the quarter finals (previously, the number of points scored would take precedence over the number of games won, so that an unbeaten Octochamp would often finish behind a seven-times winner who had lost their eighth game). The idea was to reward an Octochamp for their unbeaten record by automatically guaranteeing them a high ranking in the seedings table, and therefore a (potentially) easier quarter final-tie. However, as there were no Octochamps in this series, this ruling was not enforced for the first time until the following series.
