    Mighty fine crossword from Boaz. I will be reviewing later on when I have decided how to illustrate 10a :)

    A really great NTSPP, thank you Boaz. Just right for solving over lunch as there were a couple of clues I had to read out to Mr CS so that I got the Eureka moment. Lots of good pic opportunities for Prolixic – just hope the illustration for 10a doesn’t scare the horses :D

    Nice puzzle, well-done to Boaz!

    Plenty to smile about here – although no comment on the homophone at 19d.

    Excellent debut NTSPP, pitched at just the right level. It could almost have been a Ray T…

    I came to this one a bit late but really enjoyed it. Thanks to Boaz. Favourite clue (obviously) 10a.
