    I hope you all enjoy this one – I know that I did!. This is very accessible to all levels so I would urge you all to give it a tickle.
    This evening (approx 8 p.m. BST) I will be posting a usual hints style of review for this (much like Prolixic’s own review of NTSPP018 last week).

    A thoroughly enjoyable puzzle, Prolixic. I started to note the ones i like best and then there were too many, so I have pared it down to these – 17a, 23a, 30a, 6d, 12d, 21d.

    Don’t often have time to do these but weather so bad it was either this or clean the oven! Very enjoyable puzzle – as Tilly says too many good clues to pick a favourite.

    As per Crypticsue, I don’t normally get time to get around to the NTSPP, but today, the weather being bad, I thought I would have a go. This is an excellent crossword, and I can only recommend it to those who might also be stuck inside waiting for the weather to improve.
