i Cryptic Crossword 1835 Quixote

December 26, 2016

Bleary eyed as I was this morning, I was pleased to find a Quixote in the i rather than something more taxing. As it was, I still made very heavy weather of this, partly I suspect because I struggled to get 3d even though it was a clearly flagged anagram. Perhaps I should have waited until after lunch?

Anyway, hope you all had a good Christmas Day! A train set is demanding my attention here next…

COD? Lots to like, but I’ll nominate 10ac – ‘Emergency action – start to confer with everyone back in the pavillion (4-3)’.

To a Boxing Day long ago…

    Just the thing for the solver who has a little extra time available, but is still a touch befuddled by overindulgence I thought, blearily. I was rather hoping for a cryptic jumbo, but the general knowledge puzzle will have to do for later on.

    3d was a mystery to me and EL = railway struck me as as bit dubious otherwise it was good. 2d and 11d getting large ticks.
