Think I may have gone wrong (again).
33a Greek saint heals wound
T?E?S???A? The only word I can find to fit that is THEISTICAL, which I cannot parse at all. And it leaves me in a mess with 23d Engine driver passes over eastern line. ?I?S?I
Please help.

Many thanks, ab. I thought it might be an anagram of saint and heals but Chambers Word Wizard came up with nothing. Serves me right!
Now got the answer to 23d.

Have finished now, would welcome explanations with the following (assuming they are correct):
39d Lacking power, fly from new goods packed in salt perhaps? = HANG-GLIDE
12d Flower that's extremely attractive in glass = PAEONY
6d Check Crabbe's most successful works = BLOCKBUSTERS
13a In the open air with fleece and cap = OUTGO (?)
Many thanks

Check is block. Buster Crabbe was a diver who may have done a bit of spying!
