BD Rating – Difficulty ** – Enjoyment ***
Hi all. Another very pleasant puzzle from Silvanus to get the four-day week of Toughies underway. And a four-day weekend to look forward to as well! I’m not quite sure how to rate the difficulty because most of it yielded easily, but there were a couple of stragglers and one (17d) which stubbornly refused to budge: I stared at for a few minutes at the end, teased by the helpful-looking checking letters, before giving in to temptation and using the Chambers app.
