Good evening! I think I’m getting an idea of the theme for Doc’s offering of this week. I’m stuck on the last three clues, answers to which should see me cracking the theme. Many thanks in advance!

22(A) Prevent, for instance, computing command (6, two words): ?A????
( BACK UP )
35(A)Sergei, maybe, sort of blue, but lacking touch of purple (7): ?US????

36 (D ) Bitter for Pierre eating fries off and on (5) : ?I?R?
( PIERS )

Good luck with cracking the theme, Matakari - 'theme' is rather a grand term for this one!

Thanks, teenieleek, sandyRoe, toorak and NACW! I should have seen 36D...in hindsight, it's so straightforward! On to the "mixtures" which are falling into place now!
Thanks, Matakari, The 'falling into place' will take mere minutes, I expect.

Good morning, omitted to declare that once the grid was filled I got the unclued “mixtures” quite easily. Doc’s style in this regard was unmistakable!
Thanks, Matakari. It wasn't much of a puzzle really!

I would just like to add one comment on Doc's crosswords. He is my favourite setter and will always provide a speccie which is hard but not too hard and will be doable and fun. What more can you ask for?
Enjoy!
Can you help me with 14 ac, please.

Old tub's revolving cover
I have C?W?
Till2, Cowl - it means both those things, a tub/vessel and a lid.

Farrwest, thanks - Doc is probably my least-favourite setter!
Thank you, NAC.
