Big Dave and the team of bloggers would once again like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
A special thank you to all the crossword setters, especially to those who have taken the time to leave comments on the blog, and to Phil McNeill on this, his last, Christmas as Editor and his team at Telegraph Puzzles. The New Year will see the transition of power to Chris Lancaster, the new Editor.
If you are one of several thousand lurkers that visit the site every day – why not break cover and say hello!
Although the Daily Telegraph is not published today, online subscribers have been treated to not two but three web-only cryptic puzzles – a standard puzzle, to be reviewed by Miffypops, a Toughie by proXimal, to be reviewed by Big Dave, and finally an extra-beastly Double Toughie from Elgar, to be reviewed by Tilsit. The reviews of the standard puzzle and proXimal’s Toughie will be published later today, but the review of Elgar’s Double Toughie will not be published until Saturday, 30th December, to give more time for solving!
