    I enjoyed test solving this. Radler has produced an excellent puzzle. Review will by up at 3:00pm.

    I printed this off and looked at it and looked at it and in the end had to give up and go on line to use a couple of ‘reveal letters’ to get me started. I found this the hardest Radler yet but I did like 11a. Thanks to Radler for the right proper brain stretcher.

    I’m having problems printing the PDF – is anybody else or is it my steam driven PC acting up again?

      It worked for me, the only trouble was I couldn’t solve it on paper!!

      You need to click on the PDF printer icon rather than using CTRL/P or using Print from the File tab.

        Thanks Gazza but it will have to wait until tomorrow. Its 16.22 & my armchair beckons for the England-France game & I must replenish the beer fridge before the kick off!

    Excellent puzzle from Radler – where do you get a twisted mind like that from? Luckily I got 14a pretty early on, which gave me the phrase and associated clues, otherwise I’d still be struggling this time next week. Favourite clues 11a (wonderful), 23a and 20d.
