CLUELESS 81
Welcome to Clueless, our informal weekly clue-setting competition.

The idea is to compose a cryptic clue to a given word or phrase.

The winner of the previous week’s competition both sets the word to be clued and judges the entries for the current week.

The judge’s decision is final; reasons may or may not be given at the judge’s discretion. It is customary for the judge to donate a virtual prize to the winner.

To be fair to others, please do not make any comments on entries until after the winner has been declared.

Multiple entries may be submitted and new competitors are particularly welcome!
This week’s phrase is:

CHARLES DARWIN (7,6)

Clues to be submitted by 16.30 BST tomorrow (10th October) with the winner being announced soon after.

Good luck everyone!
