Romped through this but fell at the very last fence as is my wont. Humorous satirist's mockingly contemptuous, I'm told (4). I have SN?I. I have some ideas but none satisfactory. Any help?

Last one (as ever). Story of a failed marraige had losers in a state (9). Unless I've made a mistake it's: R?S?H?L?E. Riseholme fits the pattern but not the clue surely? Help appreciated (as ever!)

Last one. 25a Mate in bed? That's crude and not allowed (3). P ? L. Mate is pal but how does the rest of the clue work? What obvious thing am I missing?

I'm stuck on my last one. 2d One who portrayed Hyperion primarily in earlier times, with nothing to give up (9). Unless I've made a mistake it's H?L?E?U?N....

Either I'm completely mistaken or solvers are somewhat short-changed parsing-wise in the following two clues. Am I on the wrong tack? 5d. Young lady in a seaside resort in Spain? Just the reverse (5)....

Given name of secret historian, a name to agree about (5). I am pretty confident about what I have, namely A?N?A. Annya parses satisfactorily but I have been unable to find any connection with Samuel...

I'm stuck on the last one: 21d. Asian at last in a state turning up here (6). I have ?I?N?A. So the solution must be VIENNA (VA round N and IEN reversed) but I've not been able to find anywhere called...

I have one to go in yesterday's Guardian. Car's board to break — a bit (4). I have ?a?h. The answer is, I presume, NASH, but I'm at a loss trying to parse it after spending about 15 minutes on it...
