i Cryptic Crossword 2806 Dac

February 5, 2020

After yesterday’s trials and tribulations Dac is handed the task of restoring confidence with a pretty straightforward, and as always enjoyable puzzle. I fairly shot through this, my only problems being of my own making in that I couldn’t read my own writing in one or two places. This is not an uncommon occurrence. Lots of well flagged definitions, lots of always immaculate wordplay and smooth surfaces, I’m guessing this will most definitely be a crowd-pleaser. All of which leaves me time to go for a lunch-time walk now that the sun has put in a surprise appearance.

COD? So many to pick from, but I’ll go with 4d because it’s such a good example of how Dac makes this setting lark look so easy – “Worry business people are holding back (13)”.

To October 2015:

    Crowd pleaser? Well yes, probably, and the workmanship is as excellent as ever, but really that was so swiftly dispatched that I can’t pretend to feel that I got my money’s worth.

    Agreed on all points from both of you!

    About ¼ done over the breakfast table, then the other ¾ after getting home from work. Perhaps not entirely as swift as you guys imply, but still happily enough and without the need to go looking anything up or refer to lists. 9ac and 23ac both garnered a “ha” (as in “ha-ha”) in the margin.

    And I agree on all points too. Yes, dtw42, TYPHOON was a real ha-ha moment.
