Hi Jul,
72 - fictional detective with "Very British" first name!
73 - degree abbreviation + U(niversity) + dr + on + s(mall) (then look up resulting word - I had never heard of it!)
87 - subject of C&W song
90 Another word for hair with American soldier inserted backwards.
93 Anagram of deer came then look up synonym for resulting word.

In return Please can I have a clue for 18 - I don't have Chambers 10th edition and am absolutely stumped by this one.

Hello Sumarmak. Yes I was stumped on no.18 but have now got a 10th edition dictionary which gave me the answer straightaway! Without giving you the actual answer, the clue in the dictionary says "the eighteenth letter in the modern English alphabet is sometimes called this". Hope this helps.

I see you are enjoying your new 10th edition dictionary haeremai18 !
I have finished (I think) but I am still uncertain of my answers to 12 and 28 so I am keeping my eyes open for any queries re these two questions.

Regarding the missing Palman and clue 28.....I know Palman is sitting chuckling at the thought of us all waiting for the hint! I have, like others, tried anagrams....SHE TO DANES makes headstones, don't think that is right....so frustrating.

I've been playing around with an anagram of danes ending es, with another s to make a female ending for 'she', but I think I want a dog not a cat...

Now I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel....found someone called Claire Danes who stars in Homeland. Not a programme I've ever seen, and looking at Wiki and Imdb I can't immediately see an possibility of an answer. If anyone has any suggestions.....
