** In a special category of awesome are players who speak for the full minute without interruption in their debut appearance, especially if it is their first subject of the recording. For example, Creator/DavidTennant spoke for an uninterrupted minute on his first subject (ExitPursuedByABear) on his first appearance on 10 February 2015.



* On the 10th of February 2015, Creator/DavidTennant, on his first appearance, with his first subject (ExitPursuedByABear), talked for one minute without interruption - a feat which it is believed no-one has managed before.

** Bonus points (sometimes actually handed out by Nicholas) if they actually go for ''more'' than a minute without being interrupted.

** Bonus points (sometimes actually handed out by Nicholas) if they actually go for ''more'' than a minute without being interrupted. For example, in the 21 October 1974 episode, Peter Jones spoke for ''90'' seconds on "faulty equipment" and was given three points instead of the usual two.[[note]] He still finished second behind Clement Freud.[[/note]]

** Clement Freud managed ''three'' "perfect minutes" in the 14 March 1981 episode, on "after dinner speaking"[[note]] not coincidentally, something Clement was often engaged to do[[/note]], "how to make a fortune", and "the best putdown I ever heard" - in the last case, going for 70 seconds. (For extra awesome, the episode also featured a "perfect minute" from Kenneth Williams on "hauntings").

* From the 2012 TV series, given the subject "Pardon my French", Gyles Brandreth, Tony Hawks and Nicholas Parsons all start playing the game in fluent French for the first half of the minute, much to Paul Merton's bewilderment.[[hottip:*: Worth noting that, as a boy, Gyles was a student for several years at the Lycée Français de Londres (now the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle), one of Britain's elite French language schools.]]
