Episode 7614

From Countdown

Episode 7614 was broadcast on 12 October 2021, as part of Series 84.

Matt Watts played Adam Beach, with Adam Beach winning 83 – 54. The Dictionary Corner guest was Keith Allen, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Red Bee Media's failures continued into this episode; not only did it lack subtitles, but the screen froze during Round 9 whilst Beach was giving his solution, and then cut directly to the adverts, similar to Episode 7612: Robinson reprised the clue after the break. Subsequently, the morning rerun of this episode which aired on 4 November 2021 rectified this error and was broadcast correctly.

NOTE: In Round 13, both players' word was MASHIER. This was disallowed as it is not in the dictionary. Beach’s declaration would have also been disallowed on grounds that he had not written down his selection.
