Afternoon All (again!). Tilsit has an appointment today so you get a double dose of me! Huzzah!. When I agreed to fill in I thought that we were due another Myops puzzle and approached the day with some trepidation as I often find him very difficult.

Giovanni has given us a stiffer test today than for the last few weeks and has reclaimed the title of “most difficult of the week” for Fridays. There are some top-rate clues here, as well as a couple of homophones which are bound to polarise opinions. Give us your view in a comment.

Another straightforward Saturday puzzle which proved very enjoyable to both solve and review. No particular favourite clues for me, but I continue to enjoy the varied and numerous ways setters employ to indicate an anagram. Thanks to Cephas once again.
