Yes please! I don't understand about the asterisked solutions! I thought 10a might be mud, and the condiment mustard but can't see what to do with the answers!
Have only just started, have 6 answers so far...does it become clearer when I have more?
AND i'm completely stuck on CLUE OF WEEK!

Clue of the week. Endangered is an anagram of the two longer words. round indicates the letter O, female the letter F. Therefore the short word is OF.

Hi Wombat. 23 across is an anagram of NAG READILY without AD (A Day)
Hope that helps.

Hi Chaz
You are correct with MUD and MUSTARD, and I think when you get the others you will see the pattern. If after that you are not sure what to do with them ask again. I don't want to tell you or anyone else more than they want to know.
Have fun!

Hi - I got the asterisked clues late last night in sudden flash of inspiration but am very unsure about 14d & 18a. I thought they might be 'Carma' and 'Parr' repectively but can't see how they fit the clues. Can anyone put me right if I'm wrong or explain how those clues work? Many thanks.

PARR is correct = 1)a young salmon under 2 years of age.
= 2)Catherine Parr, the 6th and last of Henry V111 wives.

Look again at 14d, the first letter is N so check your answer to 13a! If you`re still stuck will supply solutions and explanations. Good luck!
