i Cryptic Crossword 828 Morph

October 4, 2013

I wasn’t really on Morph’s wavelength this morning and it all seemed overly-complicated and difficult, though very clever in places, and occasionally brilliant as at 14ac: “Going out of our minds in the zone beyond space? (6,9)”. The original blog is complete.

    Thanks for the blog!

    I struggled for a long time, put it away for a couple of hours, and then rapidly got loads just from the definitions, without really getting several of the cryptics. Hosting a children’s party today, so didn’t have time to really do it justice. That’s my excuse, anyway.

    Top half much harder than the bottom I thought, but a super nina which made it all worthwhile. I also loved the anagram in 14ac.

    I found this also to be a very interesting puzzle, very impressed with 14a, one of the best anagrams I’ve seen in a long time. I felt it a pity about 5d: repeating the word “on” from the clue in the solution, I’m sure this was easily avoidable.
