Gone live

The first of my crossword solution and explanation postings has gone live on the Listener website, in Cryptic Crosswords under the Entertainment tab. Here you go.

It's quite a sizeable posting because the puzzle it deals with is the Christmas jumbo with 50 clues. I have been drafting up postings for the following puzzles lately and am appalled to find myself needing to apologise for at least one clue in each. Whether this reflects continual blunders or a pitiful sense of inadequacy I will leave for others to decide. My conclusion: those primary school teachers' reports were right: David Tossman could do better.
