8 across on DT 25733 is 'totally unsuited'

Can anyone help with 22 across and 16 down? Stuck on just these two.

Could 16d be EREMITE? And 19a SENTRY GO?? If so, not quite sure why...

As sandy said in another thread, the answer is EREMITE - a hermit. And hermits live in cells, hence the cellist reference - ouch!

22a is Titus Andronicus (anag)

not claiming credit mind you ... was posted by sandy in an adjacent thread here :D

16d .. again is EREMITE .. a Christian hermit or recluse it seems.. and not a cello player

22A us Titus Andronicus (anag. of Turin custodians)

19D is Blondie (blonde = fair + I = pop group)

Can anyone explain 2d please? I think it's "set fair" but I can't find a definition for this on the internet so don't know what the phrase means. Or do I have the wrong answer? Thank you!

Fine is SET FAIR like the weather, ready is SET and a charity bazaar is a FAIR. Can't work out why 6A is SATE!
