Before I bring the wrath of certain people down on my head, I still have 11 of these to answer and shall probably be sending in my entry incomplete. However there is one question that has really, really been driving me mad and I would love it if some kind person would put me out of my misery.

87. Beheld a ripe cod - cooked for twenty shillings (10)

It looks like an anagram and I've tried and tried various options without success. The answer or a clue would be gratefully received.

Take the first 2 letters of the first word + a ripe cod and that is the anagram. Will give the answer if you prefer.
I don't have this quiz .. but the answer would appear to be an anagram of ... be + a ripe cod ... hope this helps. The answer is a twenty shilling coin.

Question Author
Sorry,Diane, what -point are you making?
Probably it's Bradford's Crossword Solver's Dictionary that Goofy is referring to ... and I think Diane was surprised that you only have 11 answers to find Foxlee?
I've still got about 20!!!! [and lots of grey hairs] LOL
Question Author
Oh, I thought most people have finished it by now. Certainly various people have been on here asking for help with the last one or two.

Again, at the risk of upsetting 'certain people', are there any particular ones that I can help with Diane?
