    2A: H[e’s] O[ne] inside T[hunde]R; & lit.
    3A: exPECTINg
    4A: IO+N[ascent]+/eyes/ (apologies for the partial homophone — wanted to make sure the spelling was transatlantic-ambiguous)
    5A: [-g]ULPS*
    2D: TH(INN)ING (i.e. pub in affair)

      Very clever use of the Schrodinger! Nice puzzle! My time was a little inflated because of a bug though.

        Thanks, just tried to find a way to make it equally solvable on any side of the pond! Can’t say it’s wholly original though, I’m sure I’ve seen similar on here

        Great one, I love 2a and 3a! Might have to steal that "eyes" trick...

          Please do, it’s all yours! Thanks for solving

          Always nice to solve these doubled puzzles. Really liked 1D and 2D and 3A was well masked! Kept misreading [setter].

            Thank you! Was particularly pleased with 3A, it's always nice to come up with a hidden word clue that's not immediately obvious
