i Cryptic Crossword 1110 by Dac

September 6, 2014

Saturday 30th August 2014

Dac usually does the Wednesday slot in the i, of course, so it was interesting to see how this Saturday offering might differ… Well it was every bit as smooth as we’ve come to expect but, if anything, a bit harder and even a bit better still.  Just right for a prize crossword, in fact.  The surface readings in particular were just wonderful – I don’t think anyone does this aspect of setting better in any of the dailies.

I really couldn’t decide between two outstanding clues to be COD, so take your pick between:

3 down: Einstein’s decade? (7, 8)

4 across: Promoted a recording about an English church (8)

All the answers are in the original blog here: http://www.fifteensquared.net/2009/09/30/independent-7163dac/
