    This was awesome! I like the placement of the revealer in the bottom of the grid - I had worked my way down to there and was so confused until I got that one.

      Thanks - I've never done a "Thursday" theme before so I'm glad it was gettable in the end.

      Fun theme (and a great central theme entry to pair with it)! And some great cluing throughout.
