I solved this on New Year’s Day in dribs and drabs whilst lying in bed suffering from man flu feeling as though I had the collective hangover of the nation – which was very unfair as I had not had a drop to drink the night before! As result, I think that I found this harder than usual. Revisiting the crossword today for the review, it all seems a lot simpler.

As usual Tilsit has produced an excellent crossword with lots to savour. My favourite clues were 23/24a, 10a and 3d.
