Congratulations to Durham, who consisted of Colin Telfer (Theology), Nick Ledger (Engineering), John Stewart (Geomorphology), and Nick Allan (Geography), who became not only the first team to appear six times on a series, but also the first Paxman-series champions to have actually lost a game in the process.

Winners are given in bold, and the four highest scoring first round losers in italics.
