That now gives me an A in my last clue to finish, which is:
Citizen English regarded as sympathetic (4, 5)
E - S - / E - A - R
The above looks odd - at least the second word does, with those letters.
I am certain the opening letter E of the second word is correct, though.
The R comes from the answer to
One-time players making extortionate demands? (8)
which I have as E X A C T O R S.
(I originally had EXACTING - which would give an N for the final letter, (instead of R), of the 5-letter word above.)
