Getting 1dn early from a fairly obvious [but incorrect?] anagram made this a bit too easy, which is a pity as there are some nicer clues. A little theme of clues that included milk products/producers.
|9||DAIRY MAID||AID after rev(myriad)|
|10||U TURN||URN=vessel after U=”you” and [flee]T|
|11||ANALOGY||Sounds like “an allergy”, and the whole thing is an analogy, so looks like an &lit if I could only work out the “A PC crashing” bit.|
|12||CHEETAH||Sounds like “cheater”|
|13||CITE||sounds like “site”|
|14||ILL-STARRED||R[escue] T[eam] mixed up in (sea drill)*|
|15||DUCTILE||proDUCT I LEave. “Milk” seems a bit unnecessary.|
|22||TWEE||(sweet)* minus the S, &lit|
|23||EUNUCHS||EU + N[ation] (such)*|
|24||EMBROIL||(bitter lemon)* minus NETT|
|27||CHICKPEAS||Spoonerism of “pick cheese”|
|1||ADVANCED IN YEARS||(Nana is C and very)* – only now do I notice that there seems to be an E missing from the anagram fodder.
(dead Nana is C very)* Thanks to Eileen et al for reminding me, I think I did see it this way first time round but managed to forget by the time I did the blog .
|5||EDICTS||EDITS around C[ows]. Bulls in the sense of papal edicts.|
|6||LUKEWARM||LUKE [as in Skywalker] + WAR + M[ilitant]|
|8||ON THE DANGER LIST||=Critical. (Lenin’s goat herd)* + T[ime]|
|16||IN EXCESS||(scenes)* with I=Boatman and X=unknown mixed in.|
|17||LINGERIE||LINGER + IE=that is|
|18||KOWTOWED||=Scraped. (took)* around W=point + WED=tied knot|
|21||INSECT||=Cricket. I[ndia] + (scent)*|
|25||BAKE||B[reakfast] A K[ipper] E[mulating]|
