  1. The PDF link does not appear to work. I’ve tried 3 times and it cannot be found using Chrome. Thanks.

      1. The original directory was getting a bit full so I created a new one – I thought I had updated all the links but missed a couple.

    1. Did you print off the pdf version? If so, have a look at it very carefully. When you spot what you are supposed to see, it is quite a D’oh moment!!

  2. Thanks for this Prolixic, and the host site BD. As ever a good source of entertaining diversion. HNY

  3. I’m still battling with the last four answers – I still can’t find anything that looks like a question and it’s driving me barking mad. Talking about barking I would like to say that, as a collie owner, there is no such thing as a ‘gutless’ one! (16d) Only joking – I know what he’s getting at and I’ve got that answer.
    I will ‘perservate’!
    Thanks to Prolixic.

  4. I finished this crossword last Sunday … but I’m still completely in the dark as to the answer to the question!

    What Question?

    Looking forward to the review. Thanks to Prolixic!

    1. I can’t tell you about the question or I will be in a big trouble – all I can say is keep looking and make sure you are wearing shin pads because it is going to hurt when you kick yourself.
