Much as I like Beam and Ray T, his alter ego, I don’t think even he would have asked for this Toughie to be published on a Friday, the day usually reserved for arch tormentors like Elgar and Notabilis. This puzzle contains most of Beam’s usual signatures like Her Majesty, hidden words and subtle innuendo (but not, this time, a clue where the answer is made up from initial letters).
