I'm close to #4 now, but confused - either my answer is (9), not (8), or jolan has made a little slip in the clue? (Unlikely, I know!)

Stupid - my mistake, of course. I've mixed up singular and plural forms.

All done now (as long as my 5 is right)

Think I'll try my luck today:
1. THROMBI=clots;anag.("insane") of "British to dump"minus "stupid" (deductive anag.)
2. OUT OF SIGHT : two meanings, the one more modern metaphor also given in Ch.
3. TALK-IN:1st 5 wds def.; "tin" (=can) surrounding "walks" with both ends missing
4. FLAGELLA: def. "whips";flag (grow weary)+ all (every one) reversed to "e" (earth)
5. CENOTAPH:def. hollow tomb;CP (Communist Party) + H (-ungary) surround ("embrace") "at one" (=in agreement).
Thank you, Jolan: I believe I'm getting to know your mind!

1. British to dump insane but not stupid clots (7)– Thrombi?
(anagram of “British to dump” without “stupid” gives thrombi –clots)

2. Marvellous! It’s hidden (3,2,5)- Out of sight?
(Means both marvellous and hidden)

3. An informal, yet intensive, discussion can take place around endless walks (4-2) – Talk-in?
(“Can” = “Tin” around endless walks- “alk” gives Talk-in – informal discussion)

4. Whips grow weary with each one coming back to earth (8) - Flagella?
(Flag – grow weary, with “each one”- “all” coming back-lla, to Earth – e = flagella, whips)

5. Communist Party and Hungary embrace in agreement about an empty tomb (8)- Cenotaph?
(CP (Communist Party) + H (Hungary) around “atone” (embrace in agreement) about- enota, gives “cenotaph” an empty tomb.

Many thanks again, Jolan.

Just three to offer:

1. Thrombi - subtractive anagram - my favourite
2. Out of sight - double definition
3. Talk-in (can=tin) around (w)alk(s)

A lot of head-scratching but fun as always.
Thanks jolan x
