All Change Open Arms Quiz

I have had a copy of this quiz for just over a week and I think I am uncovering some potential inconsistences. Each answer is the name of an underground station arranged in order of the length of solution. However
75. Historian heads urban area (should have 12 letters) and my answer has only 10.
93. Where Jack and Jill went to school? (should have 14 or 15 letters) and my answer has only 10.
The most obscure clues read simply 13. Nine (should have 7 letters).
82.’Make ‘em obvious’, we say (should have 12 letters).
Has anyone else run into the same problems?

Not very definitive but may help jog some grey cells http://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/Quizzes-and-Puzzles/Crosswords/Question1469797.html

93 Harrow on the Hill ?
75 Acton Central?
Question Author
Hi Kettledrum ~ sharp as ever! Also thanks to Captain2

I had GRANGE HILL for 93. and (William) CAMDEN GREEN for 75.
82 Turnham Green?
Hi Crofter! Very good to see you again.
Isn't Acton Central rail not underground?
Question Author
Captain2 Your back reference to the earlier http proved useful!
In fact, bcrompton was "on the button" when suggesting that this clue linked back to No 9. ARCHWAY. Thereafter, BOW = ARCH (as in RAINBOW) and WAY = ROAD! Thus giving BOW ROAD, which correctly slips into alphabetical order.
The jury is still out on TURNHAM GREEN!
Hi Tommo!
Acton Central is part of the London Overground network, so you're right that it's not an Underground Station, but I rather suspect that the setter has not been too concerned with the technical niceties.
Perhaps Crofter can let us know if any other answers are not strictly Underground Stations.
Question Author
TOMM033 ACTON CENTRAL is not correct.
Question Author
75. is CANNON STREET
Not all the stations are underground.
Question: is GREEN a synonym for OBVIOUS?
Crofter, you say each answer is the name of an underground station, now you say they're not all underground. Why the change of mind? I know two people who have been doing the quiz, and the only one they've been stuck with has been the historian one. Seems there are six historians who could have supplied seven answers, none of them fully satisfactory.
not all 'underground' stations are in fact underground
I am trying to do this quiz as well, and thought Cannon Street was the best answer for Q75; however, I have the same station as the answer to
Q73 Billiard ball manoeuvre...?
I think Harrow on the Hill is the best answer to Q 93
Would Canon's Park be a better answer for 73 (to park is to manoeuvre ) leaving Cannon Street as your answer for 75 ?
Should 82 not read, 'make 'em envious'? Then Turnham Green fits perfectly.
