Episode 6400 was broadcast on 20 July 2016, as part of Series 75.

Stephen Fuller played Aidan Linge, with Aidan Linge winning 106 – 27. The Dictionary Corner guest was David James, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Fuller's offering of DOTTIER was erroneously allowed in Round 11, as there was only one T in the selection. Had it been disallowed, Fuller would have held the record for the lowest score by an incumbent champion, a record currently held by David Ellis, with 23.
