2020 COVID-19 hiatus

From Countdown

Jump to: navigation, search
See also: Series 82

The 2020-21 COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the filming of new episodes of all versions of Countdown proving impossible. This page details the repeats that were shown during a 14-week long hiatus during the second quarter of 2020, after the stockpile of recorded episodes of Series 82 ran out.

Channel 4 aired all but two episodes (due to request from Chris Hawkins not to show his two appearances) of the 30th Birthday Championship, with some rounds and interactions excised. From 29 June to 7 August, Championship of Champions XIV and Championship of Champions XV were repeated.

Notably, the repeat of the 30th Birthday Championship second round match between Innis Caron and Kirk Bevins did not show the first of two conundrums due to the definition of its solution having some relation to the pandemic, meaning that it looked like it was not decided on a tie-break conundrum. A similar situation can be found in the first episode of Series 73, where the first two conundrums were cut from final broadcast to save time.
