Thanks scorpiojo and Sam1960 I don't think I'll be a fan of smurf if he/she continues setting the Speccie. Any ideas on my final question?
Farrwest, there's brief reference to 40 A in the listing for another of the themed entries.

Thank you Nical. Got it but it confirms my previous views of Smurf!
Farrwest, glad you got 40 A ticked off. I found this puzzle rather disappointing - any Brewer's-dependent puzzle is disappointing!
40A was an early Bond movie. You're right - it isn't in Brewer. Mistake in the preamble.
Flan, 40 A IS mentioned in my Brewer's - as I said, it's contained in the entry for another. It's not great that it's not got an entry of its own, as the others do. I no longer have my copy, but I think this might be the part referred to in the preamble, where two entries join with the theme word, to make a trio.
Except for 43a all unclued lights are in Chambers
Thanks, whatsthat. The preamble specifically mentioned confirmation in Brewer's - maybe they want us all to buy a copy?
