i Cryptic Crossword 2562 Hypnos

April 25, 2019

A very enjoyable IOS reprint, nothing very obscure, the Italian writer at 22ac, the singer at 10ac maybe and I cant say 21ac sprung readily to mind when thinking of TV drama’s  but with the checking letters in they were all readily gettable and easy enough to parse once written down.

As said over on Fifteensquared  it is very difficult to find much to say as its all so clearly clued that it just remains to pick a COD which is 8dn

Set of rules corruptly concocted and found to lack sanction ultimately (4,2,7)

    Thanks to all for covering this week. 😀Another that was pretty straightforward and enjoyable. Just the thing with a drink in hand to distract from the noisy kids disco.

    Just the thing to hide behind in a hospital waiting area too, but not for two and a half hours. Fairly unremarkable, but I won’t pretend to be terribly chuffed with 10ac. Who? Otherwise all fine and straightforward.

    Yes, all reasonable enough and/but nothing to make a fuss about. I quite liked 21ac (though I’m sure it was more front-of-mind in 2015 than now). Was lucky to have vaguely heard of 10ac (can’t say I’d recognise either him or his voice though); 2dn was LOI.

    Frankly we all should know George Ezra because his catchy ‘Riding Shotgun’ song was THE song of last summer. But back in 2015, I wouldn’t have had a clue.
    Another very gentle crossword this week – surely it won’t be again tomorrow?

    I found this quite challenging, especially in the bottom half of the grid, and needed two sessions to complete it. Even then I needed assistance for JOB CENTRE (I got fixated on the idea that post=mail and was trying to find something with [letter]box as the first word) and CULPRIT. But a satisfying solve nevertheless.
