A mixed bag of clues in a moderately difficult puzzle. I’d expected the NW/SE corners to be sticking points but they fell pretty quickly – in the fact the same was true for the other pair; it was just a small handful of answers (with all checkers in place) that caused some head-scratching.
In terms of entertainment… well, it was sort of OK really; not exactly bursting with wordplay fireworks but little to complain about either, although there are a few little errors of syntax. There were five theme answers to spot (all examples of 9d).
My favourite clues are shown in blue text.
