23 Your S is wrong

26 Scheelite  - S Che Elite

27 Referee, whistler.

26 Strides, garment, trousers - just an anagram of Tried with the outer letters, extremely, of sensuous.

24 A four-letter farmyard bird+ the everyday three letter word for made a meal, had a meal and the usual two-letter Spanish. PS I hadn't noticed your R was also wrong.

Many thanks, NACW, the theme has revealed itself and I'm now left with a few clues to crack. Grateful for any help!
10d    Disc is silver covering scrap metal (7) : S?A?E?L
20d    I won’t bite Sir Anthony and Sir Henry (8): B?E???T?
28d    Plain ones leaving place with Tube (6) : ?TSPPE
17a    Top cops needing person to stop suspect (6) : S?PE??

Thanks, Matakari. I am afraid you have more mistakes - in all of those except 17 A!  Would you rather just have answers? My hints often don't  work for you!

Question Author

Ok,NACW, I would appreciate answers with parsing wherever possible, thanks.

10. Scissil, scrap metal - 'covering' means the answer is in the clue.

28 .  Edentate, animals that don't bite. Eden and Tate are the surnames of the people mentioned.

17 A. Supers, top cops, superintendents. Sus, suspect, with Per, person, inside.

28 Steppe, plain.

Thanks again, NACW!
