i Cryptic Crossword 1342 Phi

May 29, 2015

Is this Phi reclaiming his accustomed Friday spot? If so, it’s very welcome. A nice crossword to finish the working week, nothing too difficult from him today, a pleasure to solve as always.

Hands up who jotted in ACCURATE for 16d before it became clear the anagram in 26ac wouldn’t work?

The definition in 13ac confused me, but I’m guessing it refers to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inns_of_Court

COD? 26ac – ‘Typical! Google all over the place regarding pyramids etc (13)’.

    Another happy customer here, who rather wishes that it had lasted longer. 🙂

    One for those who like solving long anagrams – almost all the 10 answers longer than 8 letters were such, which didn’t quite suit my tastes. I too, JoW, went curate before curacy!
