Solving time: 32:36
This was really hard, but with some excellent clueing. After 10 minutes I had solved 3 clues (MASCARA, LAND AHOY and NEOLOGISM). Eventually I just wrestled with the anagram at 16dn until I solved it, and after that things started to move, but I still struggled to finish it off, especially in the top left (where I have one gripe – see 4dn). No mistakes though (but I can’t explain 10ac).
