Annoying that ATAVISM is a thing, you can be ATAVISTIC, but there's no ATAVIST.

Re the 553 numbers game, where Rachel says "You might kick yourselves . . ." I think it would be good if sometimes she would say something like "After you've made 525 you're looking for another 28, which is divisible by 7. So, 75+4 = 79, and 79x7 = 553". Easy enough to do, and might be helpful to some viewers.
Carol used to.

I wondered about that too.

I agree actually. A lot of contestants wouldn't consider adding before they multiply. Although I have no idea where the champion pulled 46*9 from in one of the other rounds, considering the rest of his numbers.

Just managed to retrieve the recording after a severe Internet outage in my area, looks like this is the first episode to have the "Filmed in Salford" treatment in the Credits after the new finishing to the 8/10 Cats Does Countdown credits as well. I personally like this change, the ending with just "ITV Studios" before is a bit dull...

Mayorship seems a bit harsh for a non-crucial heats conundrum. Agree about the 75+4 thing, except I saw it as 553 being one less 7 than 80 x 7.
