i Cryptic Crossword 1871 Quixote

February 6, 2017

Our Indy reprint today dates from February 2012, rather than the summer of the same year as has recently been the case, presumably to mark this occasion: Queen 65 years on throne. Royalists will no doubt be delighted, republicans less so, and the rest of us probably a little indifferent, if pleased that the editor has taken the trouble. 🙂

Anyway, this was an enjoyable, not too taxing puzzle to start the week. I hadn’t heard of 12ac, 2d or 11d before, but the wordplay and a few letters got me safely home.

COD? 22d – ‘No absorber for repeated pee? (5)’.

    Ah yes, that passed me by. Not much in the way of flag waving round here, which is surprising. Anyway, a nice brisk puzzle to start the week.
