Episode 5640 was broadcast on 11 February 2013, and was the first Round 2 match of the 30th Birthday Championship.

Tom Rowell played Jonathan Rawlinson, with Jonathan Rawlinson winning 94 – 65. The Dictionary Corner guest was Ken Bruce, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Notably, Dent highlighted that the airdate of this episode coincided with her daughter's birthday.

This episode was repeated on 8 June 2020. Notably, Rowell's declaration of CORONAS was not edited out, unlike the first conundrum in Episode 5645 a week later.
