  1. We dunno about John Galbraith Graham, but we enjoyed this one enormously. So many clever clues, including some diabolically sneaky ones, on the key clue word! What’s more, we went on to do some of the Telegraph ones we used to do, only to find them so very yawnsome compared with the toothsomeness and entertainingness of yours that we ended up thowing them away. You have ruined us for other compilers!
