    If I ever got to choose the lineup for an episode, I'd have Lee and Victoria against Jon and David Mitchell. Four smart, funny players and we'd get to find out who is the best Countdown player in the Mitchell household.

    Lee Mack's silliness is an intentional schtick - his immediate play on situations and ingenious building on improvised moments is honestly some of the most impressive comedy around. He takes nothing seriously, least of all himself and that is the best thing about him.

      Took me ages to figure it out but the solution is:
      (9+50/10)*25 = 14*25 = 350
      350 - 2/2 = 349
