“Fits and starts” is a description of my progress with this puzzle. I started pretty well in the NW corner and then confidently wrote in “antiepileptic” for 7d, only to hit a brick wall later when I came to 18a and 23a.

It was a very enjoyable challenge (with only two anagrams, which is a definite plus point for me).
