  1. Sorry Radler but this was yet another of your puzzles where I looked at the clues for some time on paper , went away came back and looked again and then resorted to the interactive version for some helpful letters. I definitely think I always get thrown by the more complicated clues and can’t see the simpler ones such as 9a and 27a because I over-beffuddle myself. I can’t find the solution to 12a as one word – I thought it was 7, 3. However, it was a very good theme which did help me to get the puzzle finished so thank you for my Saturday lunchtime diversion.

  2. Thanks CS. I think my reputation precedes me sometimes, because as you’ve noticed in hindsight, there are some easier clues to get you started.
    You’re right about the enumeration in 12a. It should be 7,3. That was my mistake, made when hurriedly transposing the puzzle from a Word document last night.

    1. I did try very hard to ignore the fact that it was a Radler in case, as you say, your reputation precedes you but still found as I said above that the easier ones get lost in the midst of all the troublesome ones.

  3. For anyone still scratching their heads, I’m planning to get a review up some time today.

    I know that Radler’s crosswords are tricky but the theme for this one is well signposted and concentrating on these clues give you a good start on the puzzle.

  4. Phew, I thought that was the most difficult NTSPP we’ve had. It took me ages (not helped by the fact that I’d written in Come Upon for 4d) and I almost gave up at one stage. But i did persevere and eventually got there, so thanks to Radler for the brainstretcher.
