NC’s DA from the 2nd of January

NC’s DA cryptic crossword for blogosphere

NC kindly sent me over a scanned copy of his attempt at defeating DA’s 2nd of January offering. I lost my copy, which RC and I largely failed at solving, and now we can get ourselves some answers for our confusions.

  1. Thanks for putting this up, AS.

    I am keen to get the solutions (and hopefully explanations as well) to 1D and 17D. Looking at this again I think I made an error with 22A: Twist bunch (4). I now think the answer must be SLEW not “skew”. Both words have the sense of “twist”, but only slew also has the sense of “bunch”, i.e. “a lot”.
