  1. No defn clues (total 12):
    Across: 4,10,12,13,23,24,28,29,30 – so 9 no defn.
    Down: 6,16/2, 19 – so 3 no defn.

    The only one a bit different is 23A – but should still be true and does not have a defn, juts wordplay.

    Anything I missed??

  2. Agree with your list except I had 28d as a normal clue with “aberration” doing double duty as definition and anagrind (or an &lit?). You’ve made me think now (no doubt emitting some 28 acrosses), but are 28acs a “piece”?

  3. Tim C – thanks. Yeah I am not sure. Still think it is 12, as I see 28A as one of them but could easily be wrong.

  4. I’m inclined to call it a DA error, the alternative reading of 28A being rather strained IMO.

    Until DAJ’s count I’d accidentally left one of the 12 uncounted.

  5. Sorry, didn’t read this before I posted on Confusion. I’m happy with 11; 28A is defined for mine. And I’d answer your question with ‘No’, Tim, also distancing 28A from the theme.
    Has DA responded?
