Just a note - if you printed this off (as I did) before 12 noon it might be an idea to revisit the Guardian site, as it has been updated (eg 4 down now shows as (3,3) rather than (6) which is what my printed version still had.

prospero:
'except that 8 should say 8,15,14'

Oh, OK. Well done for finishing!

I had a quick look over lunch and did a few answers but haven't worked out the 30 thing yet (group of brass monkeys lacking vitality (4)). The only answer which sprang to mind after this morning's fiasco had 5 letters...
