i Cryptic Crossword 1784 Raich

October 27, 2016

An enjoyable, pretty straightforward puzzle from Raich. I must admit to failing to spot the very clever wordplay in 1ac and just bunging the answer in, but what else could it be?

Lots of very nice clues, with COD going to 13d – ‘Quaking heart when pert niece misbehaves? (9)’.

Back to April 2012 for this IoS reprint:

    ahhh .. me too on 1ac – I thought that was just a slightly naff CD.
    Finished this one pretty quickly.

    That’s awfully clever … I however am not, so it passed me by. Yes, thoroughly enjoyable all told.

    Ditto 1a. All over to quickly but enjoyable nonetheless

    With 1a I briefly sought a pair of words starting I.S. (is originally) but missed the nice ATM thing.
    I wonder if LouLou got a bit further with this one?
