28a ch(chap) (p)ill ?
Question Author
Why?
shaky ?
Question Author
Chill doesn't fit!
it does if your letters are wrong!
Check (stop) replace C (cold) with E (tablet).
So cheek is right (chaps =cheeks).
Question Author
I don't think so...

14 down is STRIP-MINE "Dig near the surface for an hour after lunch, Darwin's words ringing" i.e. PM in STRINE, hence the E

17 down is VALE PARK "After so long, pop and rock emptied Midlands stadium" i.e. VALE+ PA + R(oc)K. Hence the K.

Thank you Mike, I think that's right...
Question Author
What about the first one?
I don't like scary but no other word seems to fit.
hence, why i opted for SHAKY. just cannot parse
Are we sure that all the given letters are correct?
Question Author
I have 5 down SICKENED "Recognise that small sugar-coated parcels were revolting" i.e. KEN with S+ICED, hence S

6 down ADULATORY " A day tour left wags puffing" anag. A+DAY+TOUR+L, hence A

7 DOWN YITZHAK "Israeli Embassy's ending broadcast at 1 KHz", i.e Y+anagram of AT+I+KHZ, hence the Y.
Yep, looks fine to me.
6d is Laudatory making 5a) Sally
Yes, that fits.
voulez vous, what a relief!
Question Author
Of course!

I'm of course annoyed that there are two anagrams that work for 6 down!
