Episode 882 was broadcast on 28 July 1989, as part of Series 18.

Derek Stuart-Clark played John Gough-Cooper, with Derek Stuart-Clark winning 49 – 37. The Dictionary Corner guest was Simon Williams, and the lexicographer was Della Thompson.

For more than 30 years, this was the only game to be played between two players with double-barrelled surnames, until the grand final of Series 82 between Luke Johnson-Davies and Sam Cappleman-Lynes, neither of whom were born when this episode aired.
