  3. An extremly enjoyable puzzle. Fav. clue 20 ac. Thanks very much Alchemi and BD. :D

  4. An enjoyable puzzle, but I am stuck on 24a. Even with the check letters from the down clues (assuming that they are correct, which I am pretty certain they are) and using combinations of all the other likely letters in the blank spaces I cannot come up with anything that fits the clue. Oh well, I have another 10 days to stare at it and hoping that the penny drops.
