Christmas Puzzle 2018 - Minor Corrections

Question 11

A lower case 'c' had appeared, incorrectly as if out of nowhere.

Question 14

The hyphen at the end of 14b should be an underscore.

The downloadable Puzzle has been updated to reflect these corrections.

Any further corrections will be posted to the blog and to the corrections page.

Another brain-blistering challenge! Is anyone else stuck on 8(b), 39(b) and 40 (b)? Does any of these include a proper noun with no definition in Chambers?

December 19, 2018, Daryl says:

This one seems harder to complete than previous years - having lots of fun with it - my copy of Chambers is now very well thumbed. Di - keep looking - the answers are in there!

December 19, 2018, Elizabeth Price says:

Di - all those are in Chambers.

December 27, 2018, Di Platts says:

I've now got an answer to 40(b) but with the wrong initial letter. Aaaaaaaargh!!!!!!!!!!! Sudden inspiration....but now I've got to reconsider my answers to 37(b) and 39(b)

December 27, 2018, Oonagh Griffith says:

I have all those Di but 8c, 20c and 26c have me stumped!

Sorry - a few recent blog items have been hidden - they gave away rather too much information. Please be careful!

Hello Gordon, I haven't had my answer sheets returned yet. Should I be concerned? Best wishes, Malcolm.

Even though we have missed the deadline please would you email 2018 puzzle to me? I and a couple of friends would love to have a go at it together while we are on holiday this week ;-)
