Reasonable regular clues this week, (harder than last week, but that's not surprising) and I have pretty much all the unclueds, but I can't see any connection between them, so any and all hints welcomed thanks.

Fleshpots,  you could be going places... (Bear in mind the actual wording in the preamble.)

Crikey thats cryptic!

Is 35A a mix of a latin noun and an english one?

45A Like Napoleon in exile in Leeds in Leeds oddly....I have EN?????(7)


45a.   Anagram of in Leeds

35a - that is what I have!

I enjoyed the puzzle, and wanted others to feel the same - so  didn't want to say too much too soon! 

I think this is a referene to Animal farm and so the answer is ENSILED?


Enisled - to put on an island!

Yes Enisled a better answer.....thanks


yes hexagonal fun but do we highlight just the containeds in the unclued, I suppose so...

Quinol, yes, the highlighting of  'the items' is essential.

Sruggling with 7A

Indian city cleric lacking force (7)

I have ??RA?IC although i am not sure about the C


Johnpiper, your letters are fine. Take a common four-letter Indian city, followed by a three letter cleric, abbreviated.

I see it now, thanks for the hint. I was thinking along the lines of complete words, that's why I couldn't see the connection. Onwards! 

Fleshpots, thanks - I felt you were maybe just half a step away from totally completing the puzzle!

Question Author

Adding the finishing touches now. On the plus side, I've already finished the TLS haha

Fleshpots, well done - a productive Thursday for you!

Unclued 15A (8)  I have PRO??AI?

Could this be Prochain?

and the interssecting 4D (8)  i have 



And bit stuck on 30D

Where i have SUN?AH

Holy writings in paper on OT book


JohnP, 15 A is clued - and it is Prochain.

30 Sun, newspaper and Nah, short for Nahum, a book of the OT.

Your second E in 4 D is wrong.

Thank you

Oh.... 20A i thought it was



JohnP, thanks. Yes, you're right with 20 A - you've just put the second E in the wrong place on 4 D! It's the fifth letter in that.

PS I have just noticed that you've given only 7 characters for 4 D, it should be 8.
