After a few weeks of success my brain will not work this week. I have managed most of the lower art of this puzzle but the top part is a mess!! 1A would kick start me "Cape Horn not full of certain marine organisms" (11) Grateful for any help. Must be an anagram I think but not sure.

Hi Bob.

Not started yet, but the word cephalopoda springs to mind. Would that work with other clues?

The word is CTENOPHORAN - it's an anagram of "capehornnot"

Ah! An oft-used word, for sure.

Now I'm glad I waited to start this crossword (as usual, unless there's a postal strike looming)!

Hope that Jim C is having more success than I am with 7D Old pimp about right in indication of mishap with ovaries (9) I have O???O?ON?; As regards 10D A hero goes about fighting serious crime from long ago (11)the only word that seems to fit is CHAMPOLLION which has nothing to do with clue!! Help please. Frustrated in SW France.

Thank you eleanormcn!!! I was too tied up with a Champion also being a hero!! I have now finished the crossword as all other clues made some sense after your help. My sincere thanks.
