I have now (via Almax’s blog) come across this: the Countdown page. Let the homepage speak for its content:
“Welcome to the Countdown Page, probably the most extensive archive of Countdown results on the Web.
“Apart from the final scores of almost every show, there is much more to explore, including round-by-round details of Grand Finals, a list of series champions in the Hall of Fame, reviews of classic games and the names of all the celebrity guests to have appeared in Dictionary Corner. If your thirst for knowledge is still not satisfied, you will also find links to lots of other Countdown sites. “
The most interesting page is the following http://www.thecountdownpage.com/gotw-archive.htm , the Game of the Week archive which provides links to allow you to relive classic games of Countdown. I mean, who can (or indeed would want to) forget the Season 13, second quarter final?
Coming soon: the Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush statistical analysis; and full details of every horse Jack Hargreaves spoke about on Out of Town.
