Got a filming date. Sunday 19 April, into Monday 20 April.

I know for a fact this is either the very end of S72 or the beginning of S73, as they've talked about filming for the finals being in October/November.

Defo beginning of S73, as they're recording the S72 finals in 2 weeks time. :)

Seems strange that they've put the instructions for the top one on the front, usually they're on the label.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Do you have it in another colour? The contestant guidelines forbid white.

Oh, that'll not be a problem. Matt has more experience than I when it comes to T-shirt design and would advise with more authority, but I reckon anything's possible these days.

No, it doesn't show up well against the blue set.

Transmission date is 15 June, programme #1 of Series 73.

Audition passed, told will be filming sometime in October /November, did not feel I did that well in audition though, messed numbers up both times and 1 out of two conundrums, guess they look more towards letters rounds. maybe the rare nine from me swung it.
Married to Tracey Mills but please don't be put off. :D

hmm, I didn't know this thread existed.

Good luck Martin... S77 needs a top numberist. :)
Though, won't the transmission date be later than that?

I'm recording 2 days before you... on the 7th, and based on the DC guest info, it seems the show will air on Sept 28th.

I'll be disappointed if you miss a single max on the numbers in what I hope will be an eight-game run.

Thanks guys,

I don't practice Countdown as much as I used to due to time constraints and as such, don't get a chance to play on Apterous. But my numbers game is still reasonably powerful, my 4L game has improved since if anything. I'm trying to learn lists of words and stems from well-known words and suchlike in preparation. Going on Countdown is a (near enough) lifelong ambition of mine and I'm really looking forward to it (I'm already massively nervous as I've never been on TV before). As long as I don't embarrass myself, I'll be happy. A teapot would be rather nice as I've just moved house! :D

L'oisleatch McGraw - I got an email about a month back from Damian saying my transmission date was due to be the 17th but he did say that was subject to change. Michael Whitehall is the guest in Dictionary Corner for my first game, which I'm pleased with. :) I'm right at the end of a filming block so my second game (if I win my first) won't be filmed until the 4th September.

Yes, you are right of course... I was being dumb, misread what you wrote.
I'll be flying home on your recording date... so won't get to see how you do till telly.
I'm delighted that we're going to be S77 compadres.
With a little luck, we'll get to meet later on in the Series finals! :)

Btw, L'oisleatch McGraw = Eoin Jackson... just so u know.
(You might remember we used to play numbers attacks as apto-newbies back in Oct 2010!)

I'm delighted with that too :)

I definitely remember Eoin Jackson and definitely remember those numbers attacks and we used to have a little rivalry going. :) Hopefully, we'll both make the finals.
