My new job

Those of you who look at the Times for the Times blog will know that I’ve just started a new job. I can now tell you that I’ve been appointed on a trial basis to edit the crosswords in the Sunday Times. I’m obviously very pleased and know that many of you will be very pleased for me. At this stage there are only a few things to say:

  • A big thank you to Barbara Hall for the help she’s given me during a brief handover period, and to those at the Sunday Times who decided to see whether I can fill this role well.
  • Any changes to Sunday Times crosswords will be slow and careful.
  • For obvious reasons, I will no longer be a contributor to crossword blogs.

    I’d like to be the first to congratulate you in your new role. I’m sure they have appointed the best possible person for the job.

    I’d also like to thank you for your regular weekly posts, first of the Saturday prize puzzles and latterly the Sunday puzzles, for very nearly two years.

    Congratulations on your new role, I hope it goes well. The absence of future contributions from you will leave a large gap to fill…but I’m sure the other contributors will step up to the mark.
