Simon Harris.

A tough week for me, though I made life difficult for myself by inventing a word for 1 across and writing it in without thinking to even check. Well, all the letters of the anagram were in there.

Simon Harris.

Another week whereby about two thirds went in unaided, and then the rest put up quite the struggle. I believe I have at least managed to parse everything this week.

Quite a challenge this week, and browsing the list of answers, it’s not hard to see why.

A very enjoyable puzzle, and I was pleased to finish this one unaided, which isn’t something I manage often.
