Please can someone put me out of my misery? For 13d I have ?e?n?i?n? Something must be wrong because the only word I can find to fit is a French word for 21. Where have I gone astray?

hi torvic
your first e is wrong. It is a word meaning "passing fleetingly"

The river is in the Midlands, and is quite big.

Hi, Folks. Got through most of it without too much hassle, then came 6 down in which I spent half a day trying to fit King Lear in some shape or form. Then suddenly, the light came on.

Hope all are well.

Best wishes.

That makes three of us (at least) that 6dn has troubled, pipesmoker.

Funny how people find different clues difficult. I had no problem with 6d but my last one was 20ac. I kept thinking the French for `right` ends in `e` so couldn`t fit.
It`s been a long time since the compiler slily used `flower` for a river; almost caught me out!
I`m glad the word `next` is now on the right side of the page, avoiding the ad. M.

Thanks Jazzgirl. Was looking for a cold "chill" and had got a wrong letter in 21a. All correct now.

Re post 12 Yes Chrise. Sorry! The first 5 letters of the answer is/are one of the chess (or draughts) players.

Good evening folks. Well I didn't get to start this one until this afternoon and I have found it tricky. I too was determined that number or numbers was in 9d, didn't think much of 4d and was very surprised at the answer, and now I am stuck on the dreaded 6d - in spite of all the hints! I shall probably spend the evening running it through my head. I loved solving 1d. Cold here now - have the log fire burning away, so at least that makes us cheery and cosy.
