My heart sank somewhat, initially, when I saw a preamble to an Orlando, who can usually be relied on to be straightforward, but soon all became clear as the names of the 60’s avenging angels appeared down the sides of the puzzle. There was nothing too taxing in the clues – just one I’m not sure of but I know help is on its way!
