Series 67

From Countdown

Series 67 was the second series to be presented by Nick Hewer. Series 67 began on 2 July 2012 and ended on 21 December 2012. There was also a summer break between 17 August and 17 September, mainly due to Channel 4 showing the 2012 Paralympic Games. The series champion was Paul James, who became the first top-seeded player to win a series since Series 63.

Series 67 featured seven octochamps, the joint second-highest total in the show's history, but surprisingly, none of the seven qualified for the 800 club by achieving average scores of a century or more.

This series was also the last full series that Countdown was filmed in Granada Studios, Manchester, before moving to the new studios at MediaCityUK in Salford.

From 12 November, the show began broadcasting at 2:40pm, the earliest broadcast time in the show's history up to this point, with the exception of the Countdown Masters and the early morning repeats.

Since Series 60, players are sorted by number of wins, then by number of points. Points from both wins and losses count. Points from sudden death conundrums are not counted, and players with the same number of wins and points are sorted by the number of conundrums correctly guessed, then highest single-game score.
