Good afternoon, I had a great time this week with the Spectator, managing to crack it more quickly now. Also enjoyed Mayhem Parva by Vagans, but with great help for the DOWN clues only.(Identifying missing letters and words is not my bag of tea!) However, I was surprised to crack the theme with a cursory glance at the completed grid. Now on to A Puzzle by Prolixic, a difficult one, but for which I have already got some of the interesting heteronyms. Help with the remaining clues should help with determining the remaining heteronyms. Thanks in advance!

How many solutions form heteronyms – words that change their meaning depending on how they are pronounced?

3 (A) Pilot light's fuelled with a drop of acetylene (4) : ???M ( BEAM )
11 (A) Comes across European in baseball team (5) : M???S
13 (A) Take away AC/DC back on board vehicle (7) : D?N???S
30(A) Painful condition of deer reportedly seen by brook (9) : H?A?O???N

2(D) Prophet gives home to Welsh tailor (5): O?W??
4(D) English principles bar Conservative expulsions (9) : E?I?S?A??
7(D) Responsible for island briefly being subdued (9) : O?E?T?R?E

Matakari, well done on almost finishing the Spectator puzzle, managing some of Vagans offering and now making some headway with Prolixic... This week's Listener is brutal if you're up for a challenge!
