I found this week's Everyman was the proverbial 'game of two-halves'.
Some of the clues, like the 'primarily' and the anagrams were pretty much write-ins but others were a bit more difficult.
21a - I'd never heard of this, but that probably says more about me than the clue, however the wordplay is clear so no complaints.
6d - I think I know which 'third-man' the setter is referring to but that wouldn't account for the S at the beginning so.....?
8d - Again, I think I understand the wordplay but I need to look at it a bit more to make sure.
20d - I was unsure about the use of the present tense plural in the clue but, having checked in Chambers, it seems fine.
26a - Aside from the definition, I have no idea what's going on!
My FOI was 5a quickly followed by 4d and I was on my way.
If you do get stuck there is a very long anagram in the downs along with a partial anagram and a long anagram in the acrosses plus the aforementioned 'primarily'. There are also some generous 'hidden' clues which are always helpful.
COD There were some very nice clues this week and I particularly liked 23a and 25a but I've gone for 27a which is everything a clue should be - well written with a good surface and every single word has a function.
Thanks to Everyman for a fun crossword.
