Quality content yesterday.

We return with a new guest and a new pair of series champs. 77's Tom Chafer Cook, wearing red for Zac, against 75's Martin Hurst, wearing his usually flowery stuff. Spoilers. Who win? Who knows.

94% of yous said Tom would win, with an average margin of 21.06

Cracking performance from Tom, he could've easily maxed every letters game if it wasn't for having to make tactical decisions!
The score feels harsh on Martin given the 2 nines, he certainly didn't disgrace himself.

Well done tom. Bad luck Martin. Two nines though, very impressive. Good luck in the qf Matthew and Tom.

Missing VAMPIRES and one of the million 7s in the EELPOUT round, plus the numbers I messed up on that I should have got when I thought I had it early and realised on about 25 seconds I actually didn't all equated to 32 points on the floor, and you can't make any mistakes against someone as good as Tom, let alone a few.

I won't count the last numbers round in this as the initial pick came up with a very easy target/solution, but a tile fell on the floor so it had to be re-done with the slightly harder (albeit still very gettable) selection/target.

Still, had a great few days away from the sleepless nights of the children!!! :) And no disgrace at all losing to someone as good and as nice a bloke as Tom is.

Well, this might not have been a much-anticipated match compared to yesterday but two Grand Champions fighting once again, I mean how many times a draw results in that? Another match with a combined score of over 200 points, my my these Champions are something! :D Excellent spot from Tom with MADERNISE and EELPOUT. Also, from both, ELASIPODS, even Rachel admitted in her tenure here in a decade she never came across this word before! (I might have searched this up on Catsdown when doing up the recaps and forgotten about this.)

Unlucky Martin, you couldn't really catch up with Tom and after that unfortunate stumble in R9 you couldn't really recover. :( Don't worry, if there's one good thing that came out of all this, it's that Nick didn't cast a curse three times in a row and "made" you lose. Continue being a fan of Countdown and have fun playing at home or in the studio with the audience should you come back! And I agree with you, no disgrace at all and hope your children will like your reward! (P.S. Wow I had no idea R14 had to be redone after that happened.) Excellent work Tom, highest scorer of the CoC thus far and with that half the line-up of the Quarter Finals are known!

This isn't the end yet, oh no this is only Part I where the Grand Champions face off. There's still Part II tomorrow where the Runners-up of both Series battle, again how rare for a draw is that?

Excellent game today.
Those obscure 9's were a real treat for those of us into COC worship. :geek:
Well played both...

Ah fair play.
Far less shallow than the thing I said so.

Would've been a new high score if reforcing was a word!

I fancy Tom

I think it's generally assumed that people do now unless stated otherwise.

It was interesting listening to Nick waffling on about some restaurants allowing people 90 minutes for their bookings. But the main determiner of how long it takes is how long the restaurant takes to serve you and cook your food.
