Definitely much easier and more straightforward than of late, and I think regular solvers of the Everyman will recognize this as much more like the puzzles of old.
That's not to say there aren't one or two that may cause a bit of a headache. In order to get 15d. I had to look up a list of bingo nicknames, and the exact wordplay for 10a still has me a bit confused!
Unlike last week, where there was a plethora of actors, playwrights, dramatists etc., this week there is only one but I think he's fairly well known so I don't foresee any problems.
All in all an enjoyable puzzle and I'll be glad to hear what others think.
