Hi GK. 11a Is the name of someone who plays Jean in a TV programme called Dinnerladies and 4 down refers to a BBC programme where people write in with their comments concerning BBC programmes. Does this help?

Thanks Chris - I guessed Anne Reid but couldn`t remember when she`d played Jean - thought it might have been in the recent `Last Tango in Halifax` Jazzgirl - someone once told me I look like Judi Dench - I was immensely flattered(tho` he needed glasses) M.

Finally managed it late last night. Didn't know phrase for 18a but worked it out. Top right hand corner was last to go for me.

I am stuck on

1D Restaurant serving up pie etc (9)
14D Token animal restricts etc (9) but I have the same second letter as others ie `D` and I gather that is wrong from earlier comments, as I too had off-side for the across.
15A Dishonestly obtain horse in row (7)
24A Measure sound of fruit (5)

Any help appreciated. Hope you are all free of snow.

Hello Mondrian, I've just logged in and there you are.
1D Word for an Italian restaurant (pie = tart) anagram
14D Token((see my previous post to wally)
The off-side one should be off-spin
15A "Dishonestly obtain" is the definition. The answer has "nag"(horse) inside a word for rank/row/ etc.
24A Measure is the definition. Sounds like a fruit (green****)

We are expecting heavy snow Friday, so Wellies and shovels at the ready. Keep warm. J
