Caught Out! (from the 10th of October)

19 down: South American banker burst into Wheels of Fortune? (7)

DA has been found out! The answer here is limpopo, which Google tells me is the name of a province in South Africa and a river in southern Africa. DA was nasty enough to make banker = river, but it’s ever so splendid to see that such nastiness did him no good because he made reference to the wrong continent. The clue should have been Southern African banker burst into Wheels of Forune?, with the explanation burst = pop and wheels of fortune = limo, giving burst into Wheels of Fortune = limpopo = southern African banker.

25, 23 down: Vaccine inventor accepts 1999 boxer as alleged match fixer (5, 5)

DA does not often disappoint. Bamboozle, yes; disappoint, rarely; so I’m supposing this will be a category of clue that will not see much expansion.

Salk is the inventor of the polio vaccine and when IMM for 1999 and Ali for boxer are added into the mix, you get the letters to form Salim Malik, the match fixer. The error is, though, that the Roman numeral for 1999 is MIM, not IMM!
