      The answer does sound more likely, but can’t remember the clue for the life of me, and I’ve recycled the paper. Can you remind me please?

    also 8: sanhedrin is a Jewish court

      Yes, not made entirely clear over on Fifteensquared. Probably most famous these days for the part it played in the passion story.

    Clue for 29 was something like “How speaker’s words are received in a unionist meeting”

    I was stuck on 28, having tried “scally” in 21 down, a bit too literal really! Eccles is pretty obvious, though!
