Ashman had his first major television quiz success on Fifteen to One, winning Series 3 in 1989, and returned to win the special 'Millennium Edition' between past champions in 1999. In 1995 he won Mastermind, scoring 41 points with no passes in his heat, which remains a record to this day. His specialist subject on that occasion was the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. He later became the champion after winning the final with the subject Zulu War and in 2006 appeared at the final of the Junior version encouraging a young contestant who also chose Zulu Wars as his final subject. The following year he won Brain of Britain, scoring 38 in his semi final, which remains the highest individual score ever made on the show. He then went on to win Brain of Brains (contested between the previous three years' Brains of Britain) and Top Brain (contested every nine years between the previous three Brain of Brains). Ashman also twice won Master Brain, a radio competition for winners and runners-up of Mastermind and Brain of Britain. He also won Sale of the Century, Screen Test, Quiz Night, Trivial Pursuit and The Great British Quiz.
