I cryptic crossword 895 Phi

December 28, 2013

Phi on top form in last Saturday’s puzzle with one or two clueing devices that were new to me, as in 24a or 11a which invited us to spot ‘avenue’ hidden in the given word ‘adventure’. It’s good to see our setters still finding ways to be innovative!  My nomination for clue of the day, though, is 12a: Who’d be intent on burying ten? =SEXTON.   The original blog from  the Independent of four years ago is complete: http://www.fifteensquared.net/2009/01/23/independent -6949-by-phi
