Episode ZD27 was broadcast on 9 July 2020, as the final heat of ZoomDown Series 1.

Midway through game 1, Anderson had a power cut after round 11, meaning Armstrong and Titcombe had to take over hosting. This also meant the apterous game used to generate the letters needed to be restarted, resulting in the selections for Game 1 including two Qs and two Xs.

Game 1

Jon O'Neill played Tom Cappleman, with Jon O'Neill winning 110 – 96. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jack Worsley, and the lexicographer was George Armstrong with Fiona Titcombe operating the technical aspects.
