Quite a different Everyman this week in as much as the clues appear much wordier than usual.
In terms of difficulty I'd say it's quite a bit harder than of late - but, as we all know, this is very subjective.
If you do get stuck there's a trio of hiddens in the bottom half of the down clues and a very long anagram in the acrosses.
My FOI was 15d followed by what appears a homophone of someone with a NY accent in 15a (toidy toid and toid - as absolutely no one ever says!)
COD - there are some great clues, 5d for example, but I'm going with 16a which has a lovely surface and a wonderful bit of misdirection.
Please feel free to leave a comment or ask for a hint if you get stuck, there are always people on here willing to help.
Thanks to Everyman for a fun puzzle.
