Les, I've spotted a fairly major error involving my 44a! The word I clued is 11 letters not 10 but I think there is a spelling error which we we both missed. The 3rd letter shouldn't be there! My clue accounts for it's existence however, which will no doubt cause much head scratching among solvers. D'oh!

Thanks for that, lionheart - it was one of the "not quite understood the parsing" ones for me! I assume that the word you clued had two Hs.

Same here - I could see what you meant, but the clue doesn't quite work!

Lionheart,

Oh dear! I completely missed that one myself and I actually commented on the 'Dieback victim' part when we fed back via emails.

As long as people now know that you have actually clued for an extra 'H' in the third letter position but it doesn't have an extra 'H'
I would guess that quite a lot of folks would pronounce this word with a 'H' there anyway and also think it was spelt with one too.

Thanks for bringing that to the attention of me and the others Lionheart.

It's a silly word anyway ;)

Good evening to all the Joint Effort Solvers.
I was wondering when would be a good time to publish the Solution & wordplay file.

Has everyone had a good go at it now, if so, then I'll post them or do you want me to leave it a little longer.

I'll leave this message with you all until tomorrow and if the general consensus is to post, then I will do tomorrow.

Hope you enjoyed it. Les40

I'm done, with a few ?s to clear up. Lots of good clues again. I started to list my favourites, but there were just too many. My absolute favourite though was dja's 2dn - one of several that made me smile, but this most of all.
