  1. I test solved this one on a very grumpy crossword day and as I said to Gazza at the time, it was the best crossword I had solved for several days. I can’t recommend it highly enough – brilliant all round fun.

  2. I don’t know if it’s me or it is just beyond my solving abilities but having solved only two clues I think I need more than help, no9? wasn’t that something to do with the Prisoner??

  3. How about help to get me going? I am now up to 4 clues solved 20a is bugging me, ending in a four? 4?

    1. Mary,
      “Featured in” could mean that you have to look closely at the letters in the clue.

      1. Ah yes thanks Gazza it doesn’t help that this has printed on 2 pages and the first half of that clue was on page 1!

              1. My head hurts, despite the hint from Sue I have still only done half, going to watch the rugby and leave this til tomorrow or maybe later

  4. I’m doing marginally better than Mary – but not by far! But, I will persevere!

    25a – Rubbish golfer? Anything to do with Tiger Woods?

      1. 25a – this is actually one of the few that I have solved so far! It was just a comment on Tiger Woods’ performance in the US PGA over the last few days.

        I will continue to persevere – I now think I’ve got 9d – so everything will now become clear, hopefully.

  5. Oh dear! Defeated! But only because the interactive version uses Java … and I use an iPad. Nice puzzle. “Mrs Norris” made me chuckle.

  6. must persevate although Mrs S has slated me a whole day’s worth of gardening & general maintenance jobs around the property!

  7. I started this yesterday but had to go out so back at it this morning – excellent puzzle Gazza – have done the bottom half and most of the top left – just top right to go. Nice theme – makes it easier once you have sussed that out. Worth trying everyone.

    Mary – have your persevated???

  8. I’m done – excellent puzzle – took me ages but enjoyed it. Thank you Gazza

    Now I have to go and get some chores done before I even think about the Sunday puzzle.
