5d - Strange character seen around before the entry of Toby Belch - E_U_T -can`t make mind up whether it`s ERUPT or ERUCT.
21d - Eager and excited over European part ofmelody - an old Greek one - N_O_E - pretty sure it`s NIOBE but can`t work out why except that she was a character in Greek mythology.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi Slioch
Think the word is AGOGE -agog(eager & excited) +e (Europe), and which means melody or passage in Greek music, according to Chambers.

Just seen this, and confirm the two answers are ERUCT and AGOGE for the reasons stated by SuzieM and Jolan.
