Stuck on a few e.g.:

2d One listens secretly hearing lady's medicinal device
????S???O?P?N

22d He has trapped bloodsuckers in the spirals.
HE?M?E? Was thinking along the lines of HEAMA=blood?

2d Eavesdropper - sounds like Eve's dropper
22d Helices - He's (he has) around lice

Do you want the one's you must have wrong as well?

I was intrigued as to what you have wrong - would I be right in saying you have Andaman Sea for 26 across?

You need to look at a different part of the Indian Ocean!

Yes! I got the wrong side of the Indian Ocean!

Many thanks. Just one to get but I'll think for a bit longer.

hi Ash.
I would think,
5d Continue to look up. is KEEP (peek written upwards for a Down clue)
maybe Evie, for the other one?

btw 10a is definitely Evie (submitted online as correct)

Personally, I would ban boys and girls names from all crosswords, unless they relate to a specific person: e.g. Marilyn where there was a reference to Monroe would be ok, but Marilyn with "girl" as the clue would not.
