Thanks drxx. I have been through everything and double checked the 'input material' so I will probably either come back to it after a look at the Inquisitor or start shuffling Scrabble tiles!

And lo! The penny drops regarding the importance of the 'alteration of the key word'....which I'd done. Finished. Hurrah!

Is it too early to ask for a nudge? I've got quite a few answers i believe, but am struggling to place them in the grid. I started with the two 12 letter solutions which must be correct if my 3 letter answers are to work out. Then I placed the earlier 11 letter answer. But this leaves me scratching my head. I can't find any place for my old English mead clue or my family crest clue. I'm assuming probably incorrectly that my 1ac and I down clues come early but I've only solved the cartoon family which probably needs adjusting before entry. I appreciate it may not be possible to help me without giving too much away. Maybe the morning will bring some enlightenment

Are you sure the 11 letter answer is in the right place?

To confirm my tentative 11 and 12 letter entries, I’d appreciate a nudge towards a couple of 3 letter answers : Full acceleration…. And Brag for one….Many thanks

Dylan - both of those clues are non-thematic so have misprints in them.

Full acceleration - try playing around with some abbreviations. First word = definition.

Brag for one - again definition is the first word.

Like others, took me a while to work out what was going on but, as is so often the case, once the PDM occurs, it all falls into place.

Seriously impressive amount of thematic material & some tricky misprints too - thanks KevGar for a challenging, enjoyable and, ultimately, unambiguous work out for a Sunday morning!

Dylan, the misprints are in the same position word in both. Full acceleration is an assembly of abbreviations, ascending. Brag....I question whether the number is 'large'.

I really enjoyed this. It's nearly all fallen into place, but has anyone else had problems with an 'R'?

The R is derived from the keyword.
