[Today is another milestone – this is the 500th Toughie (excluding online-only specials) that has been reviewed on this site! BD]
This was by far the most enjoyable Thursday Toughie for some time. I found it to be of above average difficulty and it needed a lot of thought to work out some of the wordplay. But it was all perfectly fair and contained nothing particularly obscure (with the possible exception of the answer to 13 across).
