Sorry, you're right. For some reason, I had 29ac marked as a pair, when it obviously isn't.

I'm stuck on 1a, 12a, 14a, 17a and 23a. I can guess what most of these might be, purely because nothing else will fit, but I can't work out what the "other halves" might be. Any pointers?

Ixion, in tables of sports results, L represents games lost.

True enough Daw...that's good enough for me, don't remember coming across it in cryptics before though.

It's about time I intervened to apologise. The clue to 2D is indeed wrong. As Eric Morecambe once nearly remarked: all the right letters are there but not necessarily in the right order. Thanks for your perseverance. You (or at least some of you I hope) might like to know that, editor permitting, Partners III is in preparation.

Thanks Crucible for taking the time to come here and clarify 2d.
It is nice to know that our little site attracts the attention of esteemed setters.
