Series 83

From Countdown

< Previous |

Series 83 is the current series of Countdown and the eighteenth series presented by Nick Hewer, with some episodes presented by Colin Murray. It was preceded by three special episodes after the finals of Series 82, and began on 4 January 2021.

Filming began in October 2020. Social distancing guidelines introduced in the second half of the previous series, including a ban on studio audiences, remained in place; it remains unknown when or how these will be lifted, but are likely to be followed throughout the entirety of this series. Editions broadcast between 13 January and 9 February, were presented by Colin Murray due to Nick Hewer shielding at the insistence of his family during England's second lockdown in November 2020, making this the first regular series to have more than one host (8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 16 notwithstanding). Hewer announced on his first day back that he would retire at the end of the year; his final episode date is not yet known, though the last episode Hewer recorded in 2020 is to be transmitted on 4 March. In addition, a recording block on 11, 12 and 13 January – the first during the third England lockdown, and during which editions intended for broadcast between 5 and 23 March would have been filmed – had to be delayed due to Hewer shielding again, Colin Murray being unavailable, two out of three Dictionary Corner guests dropping out and only seven of fifteen contestants being available.

Apterite James Burley has participated in the series so far.

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 individual score.
