A Puzzle by Isla

This week we have a sterling quality debut puzzle from Isla – hopefully the first of many. In his post on the “Comments” thread, Isla acknowledges some help from a more experienced cruciverbalist. However, to produce such a good puzzle, the initial version must have been spectacular to start with. In one or two places, I think I detected the hand of Anax in the final version of clues – was he our rising star’s mentor for this puzzle?
This puzzle was certainly at the tough end of the spectrum with some delightful wordplay with only a couple of possibly too obscure references.
Finally, my apologies for the late arrival of the review. I have been busy preparing Christmas services.
