Hi Mrs T and Dizoz,

Ridiculously, 3D was the first clue I got at the beginning of the week as I heard the homonym immediately but could not work out why it was correct. I still couldn't even after I got 29A but can now thanks to you. Still cannot work out why 12A is what it is but I suppose it must be.

Still struggling with 23A, I'm sure I know what to put in the grid but I have no idea why...

Morning angst; 23a is the partner of din backwards in triad. 12a is the partner of '10' in 3-letter word for union (......the knot), reversed.

Toughie this month I think; re: 5A, at work years ago we used a phrase "reduce,reuse,recycle" in our efforts to minimise waste/maximise yield, so clue works for me. Thought 3D/29A clever, took me ages to find answer hidden in clue!

hi all,
I felt great satisfaction at finally solving this genius.
Compliments to Crucible, you made us think outside the square (grid, that is).
thanks to all posters.

Finished, but can't quite nail 16a. I know the answer, but can't parse it satisfactorily.

16A. "hot soup" is an anagram. Remove "out".

Bed and .......

Bed is DEB backwards - years ago some young women were known as DEButantes (or just DEBS) - they "came out" which had a different connotation then to now.
