Financial Times 14,761 / Bradman

Posted by Gaufrid on 24th October 2014

Gaufrid.

Bradman has been appearing regularly on a Friday in recent months so it didn’t come as a surprise to see him today. As is generally the norm with this setter, there was nothing controversial in this puzzle though it did lack his customary obscure (to some) word or two in the grid.

Financial Times 14,755 / Redshank

A puzzle easy enough to be completed in half an hour on a rainy Thursday morning by a man with a hangover – which is lucky, because that was exactly what I needed.

Financial Times 14,749 / Falcon

Posted by Gaufrid on 10th October 2014

Gaufrid.

When I tried to download this puzzle on my way to bed in the early hours of this morning the index page linked to a Sudoku, which was not what I was looking for! Fortunately this error had been corrected by the time I got up.
