Struggling to convince myself about number 84, which is the last one I need now. The "Garbo" bit would seem a bit obvious, but I can't really be sure of it. I did consider "Brass", as she was the woman in Dickens (O.C.S.) who rejected the advances of Quilp, so it may be considered that she wanted to be alone, but even that is a bit far out!! Will keep at it though!

I've not solved nearly as many as some of you but am plodding on, done about 60, some of them only possibles at the moment. 78 I an instrument of torture which fits but cannot see that it has anything to do with the clues given. Have worked out a word for 60, took me ages but has nothing to do with extremities as far as I can think. Even 9 and 10 are eluding me at the moment!

twinsnan :- re 10 - try to find five consecutive letters somewhere in the clue, but not from left to right!!)

60 Getting muddled here.....have got the word, know what it means but can't get it to fit unless I pluralise it which doesn't seem correct. What am I missing here?

I need to go back to bed, am embarrassed by trying to be too clever and not realise that the answer was right there in the word I had worked out. Sorry everyone! Onward and upward from now I hope.

Thanks Winnie. 9 is an anagram. Took me ages to find it but it's there.

I think there is a fairly subtle answer for 84, cleverly reflecting Garbo.
Did we ever get to a definitive view on twinkle / twinkie for 30?
Is 40 an anagram? If so I can't see it!

Gandolf 34 - Indeed, an anagram, (4, "and" 5) as you suggest. Think of an English poet, whose surname is the same as a type of bottled product formerly used to colour gravy! If that doesn't help, come back again and I will expand the matter. Your hint re my one missing answer (84) still doesn't ring any bells - is the "reflected" word especially relevant?
