Stuck on the last 4 interconnected clues:

Across:

H?????

A final word from journalist Kate for the top people
L????

Down

Good reach that can give player an advantage
??M??? (First letter gives first across clue letter three, fifth letter gives second across clue letter three)

Don't allow people to express pain in carriages?
??R???H?S (First letter gives first across clue letter five, fifth letter gives second across clue letter five)

Many thanks in advance

Many thanks, both are correct.

I appear to have another clue wrong, as the shrine clue is DAGOBA - A BAD changes direction with GO being attempt, the final word clue is ADIEU, which is frustrating as I had Kate ADIE in mind all along.

The incorrect clue is:

See old City hospital with external barrier
D?R?A?

I assume this is DURHAM, with hospital supplying the H, although I can't see the rest of the solution.

Anyone care to enlighten me?

Ah, now I see it:

UR is the old city, H is hospital and DAM is the barrier.

All done. Thanks again.

The letters to the 1st across clue should now be
H?g?b? -however I think the answer could be Dagoba

A Bad, backwards with Go(attempt) inside.
