  1. Whoopee! Got ’em all! Not that it was easy; in fact we had to disembowel it slowly, but that made it all the more satisfying to ink the last letter. Our favourites: 14 across and 23 down. We do love a cleverly-turned clue. And we love amusing ones even more: we laughed a lot at 6 down. (BTW, there’s a small typo in 6 down: it should be (4,4) rather than (4).)
