Mike Brown was a finalist in Series 48.

An IT Projects Leader from King's Lynn, Norfolk, he beat Joyce Dunkley in his first appearance with 112 points, following that up with 112 points again against David Cottee. He dipped below 100 in his next two games, but got 107 against Trish Staples in his 5th game. He lost his sixth game narrowly to Neil Evans by just 13 points. Despite this he averaged 97.33 points per game. He returned to the series finals as #8 seed and faced the runaway #1 seed Julian Fell. He lost the game 125 – 67. Fell scored in every round.
