Listener No 4655 Goosey, Goosey By Malva
I love jigsaw puzzles so this was perfect for me. Solvers familiar with Malva know what to expect, but, for me at least, it is still always entertaining. I particularly liked the suggestion by the title. I haven’t resolved all the extra words, but I didn’t need them really and I’m left in no doubt about the grid. Thanks very much, Malva.

Malva, aka Dipper, has always been a quick solve up to now. I didn't find one this easy at all, though knowing Malva's thematic preferences helped me to guess the theme quite soon. I enjoyed the solve and did eventually match the extra words to the thematic entries, despite a few missteps along the way. I'll admit to using electronic wizardry to find the final member, which I probably wouldn't have got otherwise. Thanks Malva, that was fun.
Quite steady progress (interrupted by the sunshine) until the gridfill. I just hadn't enough fingers and toes to work out which of the long answers went where. Once I made myself do it, things flowed, and the unambiguous endgame rushed by. One of the thematic entries seemed like an unimaginable terror
