Series 75

From Countdown
Martin Hurst holding the Richard Whiteley Memorial Trophy after winning Series 75.

Series 75 ran from 27 June 2016 to 23 December 2016. The tenth of 18 series presented by Nick Hewer, it was won by Martin Hurst.

The second episode of the series, broadcast on 28 June, marked Hewer's 1,000th Countdown appearance.

The show was off the air for a week and a half in September, due to Channel 4's coverage of the 2016 Summer Paralympics.

Beginning on 17 October 2016, the show's transmission time was moved one hour forward, to 2:10pm, to accommodate the final series of Deal or No Deal. The show has maintained this time slot since.



Seed table

Rank Name Wins Points
1 Martin Hurst 8 830
2 Jamie Washington 8 825
3 Andrew Macleod 8 809

Annie Humphries qualified for the finals with eight wins and 775 points, but was unable to attend the tapings, so #9-ranked Tom Stephens took her place and her eligibility was transferred to the Series 76 finals, where she took the #5 seed spot.
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.
