i Cryptic Crossword 1819 Dac

December 7, 2016

Another fine puzzle from Dac that I made heavy weather of with a few unforced errors, notably a careless FIDDLER at 19d that caused me much difficulty in the SE corner. Little comment over on Fifteensquared, because there doesn’t need to be. More like this please.

COD? Too many to choose from, but I’ll go with 22d – ‘In this, one may be flung out of car hitting tree (5)’.

    He just keeps ’em coming, doesn’t he? A thoroughly enjoyable puzzle with no flaws I can see – whilst the gimmicky puzzles and stinkers are fun (or not), Dac really does set the benchmark for quality. 15ac went down particularly well here, which speaks volumes about my lack of political rectitude, no doubt.

    Yup, all fine here and no quibbles or queries 🙂

    Liked this a lot, only troubles were of my own making. 23a. I always want to transpose the A and I when I see that name.
