“The series of crosswords, now known as Inquisitor, began in 1988, headed simply Crossword. It has since appeared every Saturday, except on Christmas Days and with one accidental omission. Changes in presentation have occurred, but the team of contributors has continued to develop naturally, as has the style. Today’s crossword is number 1106 in the series. In future, Inquisitor will be numbered accordingly.”
Mike Laws, Crossword Editor, Boxing Day 2009.
The first blog on this site, by Pete Biddlecombe, contains some more information on the name changes and number restarts.
The index for each year contains a link to the relevant 15² analysis for each puzzle (including the blog for Inquisitor 22, added much later as it was missed at the time).
A list of puzzle nos. for each of the various setters is also available.
