    Nice one. That makes perfect sense, I was struggling to get anywhere with that one. I hate (and love) how obvious they seem once you know it!

    Thanks, I'm actually amazed I was able to reason it out to be honest :)

    I hate cryptic crosswords, because I'm terrible at them.

    I see, clever...

    My mum used to do them, I think a large part of it is getting used to the 'codes' that the compilers use.

    Ok, RyanDS's answers confirm that my guess was correct. Cheers Ryan!

    This thread is almost four years old. You think you'd get better at crosswords or move on to Sudoku by now ;)

    I'm not too shabby at crosswords actually. I just chuck these things out from a fortnightly work-based puzzle for people's entertainment.

    If people don't want 'em, I'll stop doing it.

    I love doing my daily crosswords (Cryptic & quick), so ignore warlock and don't stop sticking them in here if you're stuck.

    I like to try to keep the remaining brain cells I have working!

    Keep doing them

    Just ration everyone to one answer per post, so the rest of us have a chance of solving one.
