The final of Countdown 2015 produced a thriller that the great Alfred Hitchcock could not even have dreamed up . With Conor Cooper leading by 8 points , Frances Winter needed to solve the final round, 9-letter conundrum* to snatch the title from his grasp. And Frances did just that , with 10 seconds left on the clock, to gain a thrilling victory by 2 points. Congratulations to Frances and Conor for producing such a high -quality, competitive final.

Final Score : Conor 49    Frances 51
