    Highly recommended to all – if you only solve one clue, make it the wonderful 30a – and from a man of the cloth too!

    Excellent crossword, and extremely alphabetically inclusive!

    17A is an excellent clue, in particular.

    Thoroughly enjoyable crossword – Prolixic just gets better! Can’t pick a favourite from a bunch of excellent clues. Many thanks.

    Thanks to Prolixic for another very entertaining puzzle. Favourite clues 10a and 15d. I would have finished it quicker if I hadn’t originally put in “alpha” for 5d :D

    Agree with the enjoyment factor but slightly puzzled as to how I got to complete it (no change there then!) Notably 10a, 21d & 29a. Also I have never heard of the game in 20a.
    Enlightenment please.

      You’ve never heard of poker?

      20a Jigger is an old golf club. So it’s JIGGER + POKER (game) with Y (unknown) inside, finishing with (pla)Y.
