Stuck on last two, 12a (the dragon one) & 6d
(nips etc): any hope of a couple of hints at this late hour? I'm NOT familiar with British TV series!

Ok, I've got the dragon now (never heard of her here in France, of course); how about "Nips outside, nip off for mystery series" 4,5 I have ?C?N ?E?K? Any useful tips going for an ex-pat?

Guess I've got the title of the mystery series now (my "c" was wrong)- though I don't follow the "nips" bits..............ah, I see it all now! Obviously too late to ask questions when you've all finished.Time for a celebratory drink!

Thanks, jazzgirl: I got there in the end! I'm getting used to screeching to myself via the ether, then screeching back. Just mildly schizo, you see.

Hullo all - did anyone else see the coincidence of the answer to 18a - which I had to look up - occuring several times in a documentary about art & the South of France on BBC4 last evening ?

Yes, devonian. And it was about the first clue I got. Otherwise I am very stuck having found this Xword very difficult. Do we have a new compiler? Will go home now and fill in that admin thing (thanks to your help) It had me stumped along with numerous others.
