Hi all,

A bit later than expected, but here are the solution and wordplay files for The Triple Teaser No2. Hope you enjoyed it and this clarifies the 3-way wordplays.
Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any question marks about the clues.

Cheers, Les40

Thanks, Les.

Got 23A, but turned out to be 6 of one ...
No worse than my original guess. Of course URDU for 20D made no sense.

Hope you enjoyed it then. Wasn't sure if you and aristo would struggle on the 'Diversity' link in 18d, being non-English TV watchers.

That was one of my ?s.

Btw, 20D has a minor typo - ST(URGE)ON

Faves: 13A, 22A, 1D, 4D

Well done.

You're right Syzzie, I've put in double 'E' instead of 'EO', I had not noticed. Thanks mate

I'm glad you liked 13a, it was one of my favourites to clue, but wasn't sure if you would all get the '&lit' with the first parts.

Speak soon Syzzie, just off to put a clue on the Peer Review and then bed time for me mate.

Glad you liked the American spelling ref in 1d too, i thought you and aristo would appreciate that one, I like the way it sounds, as though it refers to a Black American person as a misdirection.

Lots of fun, many thanks. You had me well and truely beat with 23a, I couldn't shake off filo even when I got 20d. Got the rest, though, a good challenge. Look forward to the next one.

I did get them all right, but with a few "puzzlements". Diversity did have me stumped at first, but when I'd figured out the answer I googled it with diversity and your mean trick was exposed. It took a while for the color/colour thing to click too. Tricky. Great puzzle, Les.

Great puzzle, les - I thoroughly enjoyed it. Got all the right answers, but didn't see all the explanations!
