i Cryptic Crossword 1188 by Phi

December 6, 2014

Saturday 29th November 2014
Provided you don’t mind anagrams, then this was one of the easiest Saturday crosswords in the i that we’ve had in ages. All four 15-letter answers were clearly flagged anagrams, plus we had another four longish ones to boot.
My only stumbling block was 19 down – I have a pet hate of having to guess first names in order to solve a clue, so ‘Eluned’ clued with ‘Ed’ was not my bag at all! That gripe aside, there was some lovely clueing, as we expect from Phi, my personal favourite among them being 14ac:
Commit crime and go off carrying modern evidence (6)
