i Prize Cryptic Crossword 1283 by Phi

Saturday 21st March 2015
One of the harder Phi’s last week, including one I just gave up on, 18ac: Stock of money after doctor’s bill (6) ?O?K?T. There was also an indirect anagram (just) at 20ac with ‘various weather conditions’ meaning to make an anagram of ‘climates’. And that pushes the boundaries of crosswording rules – nothing wrong with that, though!
Sometimes I find myself eulogising about our ‘occasional’ setters, as with Scorpion yesterday, and I forget how hard it must be to keep coming up with 30 ideas a week as Phi does. So full credit and thanks to all the regular setters!
COD, 10ac: Twitter conflict ran short (6)
