Telegraph Toughie

Just in case you’ve not read it anywhere else, the Daily Telegraph has a new cryptic puzzle as from yesterday. In addition to their relatively easy daily anonymous cryptic they now have the Toughie. This is a slightly harder puzzle, probably the same level as the main puzzles in the other broadsheets (although as pointed out elsewhere the Telegraph is technically the only national broadsheet (excluding Scottish-only nationals!)) The puzzle is by named setters and runs from Tuesday to Friday. It is, now, also available via their online Crossword Society (subscription charge.)

This immediately muddies the water for any future Telegraph blogs!

    Dunno if I should day this or not, but you can find a copy of yesterday’s puzzle as the first returned entry in a Google search for ‘Telegraph Toughie’ (this post being the second!). I presume the odds of the DT’s crosswords going free are about as likely as them dropping the broadsheet format!

    This is the second time in the last day or two that I’ve seen a reference to the DT as the last broadsheet. Please don’t tell me the FT’s gone all tabloid. I’ve just realised I haven’t seen a copy in a while – it’s the sort of newspaper best admired from afar, even if it’s clearly the winner in the proofreading stakes – and it might have turned, as it were. But surely I’d have heard something.

    I apologise unreservedly. Yes, the FT is still a broadsheet. Okay, the DT is the last UK-wide broadsheet printed on white paper.
