Thanks germy!

Pendragon, yes - and I gave up on the last one like this, so what with the theme and the missing clue I just gave up last night. I'll have another go.

Surely the letter-count refer to the answer to the clue rather than the entry to go in the grid? I spent ages trying to make 21d into a 7-letter word, and it was only on seeing germy's post that it made sense, but I still think it's wrong of the setter to do it that way.
Also, has anyone else got the same word twice for 25d?

The letter-count is for the answer to be entered in the grid. In 25dn, I think both parts of the pairing are the same. I'm not 100% sure because I'm struggling to find an answer to 27ac. I'm also struggling to see how 5ac works, though there appears to be only one answer.

I haven't got either of those peterm, so can't help. I still maintain that the letter-count should refer to the clue - it's pointless having it refer to the grid entry.

Mrs Trellis: the Special Instructions are quite clear about the letter counts. They refer to what you enter into the grid.

25D is the same word as in "X and X".

In 5ac, your T is wrong. Should be L. If you can explain the answer (I can find only 1 word that can fit), I'd be interested. I'm still stuck on 27ac.

Reference 27A, what Charlies do you know? Abandon the place.

Is one answer half a fictional brewery? If so, why is the other half the answer?

The top left is really hard-going (for me).
