i Cryptic Crossword 1400 Dac

August 5, 2015

A very nice puzzle from Dac today, on the easier side I thought. Lots of clues I liked, so it’s a pity the editor didn’t pick up that 5ac needed amending. 17ac was also a lot more topical back in the day, but never mind.

COD? So many to pick from, but I’ll go for 23ac – ‘Doctor No’s remedy for speaking in boring way? (9)’.

Back to September 2010:

    I like 1ac, because it’s pure “I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue”. πŸ™‚

    I found this one a lot more enjoyable than yesterday’s, with the exception of 18dn, which I failed to get, having never heard of it. (I’m quite familiar with ‘end’=’aim’ but didn’t think to duplicate it. Duh)

    Nice one Dac. Got the Mia mia thing as LOI and agree about the lack of editorial input for 5a. Heigh-ho, that’s what you get for 40p I suppose!
    For absolutely no money at all ( bar the optional cost of a print off ) may I direct followers of this blog to a puzzle by me? It’s here:
