DA for the 5th of June, 2015

DA informs me: this one’s a doozy!

Apparently it’s going to be a very tough nut to crack. Be warned. Be prepared.

And I’ll be on a plane to Cambodia trying to nut it out!

Here’s the DA for the 5th of June, 2015.

  1. Arthur our friend, any news about Margaret please?
    Here are my starters with quite easy answers so that you can work back to the definition, and then work back to 17D, like me: 1A, 10A, 16D.
    In The Age the clue to 5D has “on a”. I reckon that is a typo for “one” when there is clearly a 17D.
    My favourite was 6A, perhaps because Classic FM is on for its top 100 Swoons. Thought 2D should have had “far” rather than “on”. First 3 letters of 22A still a mystery, even if I have just typed the character.

  2. Mike – I think 5D is correct with “on a” as “on” is the key.
    22A – 1,2,3 and 8,9,10,11 come for “say”. See entry in “DA Confusion” for rest.

  3. Absolutely loved this DA puzzle! Lots of fun, I still feel like it was a miracle that I ever worked out the theme at all.
