Simon Harris.

A pretty stiff challenge this week, with plenty of unfamiliar words. I was grateful for the extended deadline, as it gave a couple more days to complete the puzzle and blog.

A pretty tough week, though everything fell into place in the end. I think I’ve explained everything, but must admit that Chambers got quite a thumbing whilst blogging!

After a fairly brisk start, this became quite a tough puzzle for me. Still, the usual top qualty crossword with lots of interesting words.

Simon Harris.

Quite a tough week, with lots of good vocabulary to discover. Perhaps a grid we haven’t seen before, as I don’t remember ever blogging a Beelzebub with quite so many across clues.

Simon Harris.
