Welcome to the review of October’s Prize Puzzle set by Radler.  The person whose name was drawn from the electronic hat as this month’s winner was Andy Cole.  Congratulations to him.  Next month’s prize puzzle will be published on Saturday 3 November.

The theme of the crossword required you to work out which letter of the alphabet was not used as the initial letter of the answers and which letter was used twice.  If you got to the end of the crossword, you would have found that the letter W was not used as the initial letter of an answer but, appropriately, there was a double U in the grid with two answers beginning with this letter.

The crossword was full of the usual Radler fun and downright deviousness.  Many thanks to him for the crossword.  I hope that I have explained the clues correctly.  If you have any queries, do let us know.

As always, thanks to our sponsors, Hamlyn Books.  Do take a moment to look at some of their publications below.
