All finished, but don't see the construction of 53 across. "Depart hurriedly, finding parasite in joint"
Answer is SKEDADDLE - can't fit "parasite" OR "joint"
to the clue.

No, it must be "Nero" for the one down, so I don't think it can be that - worth a go though!

Thanks, chrisg - I looked for an explanation of "ked",
but I couldn't find it. That'll do for me!
