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 Chris Lancaster, as he nears the end of his first year as Puzzles Editor, and his team at Telegraph Puzzles. This year has seen the introduction of the first stage of the revamped puzzles site – it’s had its ups and downs but, on balance, has been successful.
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 Mr K, a Toughie by Firefly, to be reviewed by Kitty, and finally an extra-beastly Double Toughie from Elgar (cunningly hidden as Giant General Knowledge No 100,010), to be reviewed by Tilsit. The reviews of the standard puzzle and Firefly’s Toughie will be published later today, but the review of Elgar’s Double Toughie will not be published until later, to give both you and us more time for solving!
