i Cryptic Crossword 2434 Raich

November 26, 2018

A thoroughly enjoyable start to the week from Raich, as expected, and fortunately a pretty straightforward one too. Who booked a 4:30 start this morning? A nippy solve nevertheless, awake or not, with only a little pause at the close on 3d (am I the only person to discount “with” from anagram fodder almost on reflex, correct or not), and 9ac before I remembered the eponymous hall. Nothing to scare 8d solvers, just a pleasant start to the week.

COD? With lots to appreciate, I especially liked 22d – “Find the answer, the one and only – very impressed! (5)”.

To August 2014:

    Yes, a nice traditional Monday crossword, diligently compiled. All very jolly.

    Yarp. A day off work for me, so I did this one at leisure over the breakfast table. A couple in the NE corner held out for a minute or two, but otherwise this was as near as I get to a write-in, and I was done by 9am. Nothing to quibble about 🙂

    Indeed. A very enjoyable and straightforward solve. No quibbles or concerns. Shame it was all over so quickly…

    Wot no quibbles that’s no fun, there was the football bit and err. Oh well I didn’t even mind it not lasting too long as the sun was shining 😊
