i Cryptic Crossword 743 Tees

June 27, 2013

Very difficult stuff from Tees, though unfortunately dated, with the references to Brown and Blair. As regards 20d, Jonathan Edwards couldn’t be described as a Christian jumper even in 2008?

I sat with 4 or 5 clues filled in for about 20 minutes, before the RHS quickly fell into place, and the rest after a little more effort.

COD? 23ac. ‘Whence comes Russian maiden, unusually large and difficult woman (6)’.

The old Fifteensquared, linked to below, is complete:

  1. Apropos of point above regarding Jonathan Edwards; didn’t he refuse ever to compete on Sundays because of his deep Christian faith?
