    Thanks for posting. I didn't like 1A1AFour hid in type of wine overturned by explorer (5)[-----]; I think "explorer" is a poor anagram for DIVER1AFour hid in type of wine overturned by explorer (5)[-----]. 2D2DMember of empire’s inside toilet (5)[-----] Shouldn't there be "apparently" in the clue? No criticism intended.

      Hi! Thanks for taking the time to solve and comment.
      Four (IV) is inside a type of wine [RED], which is overturned. (backwards), so there is no anagram.
      For 2D2DMember of empire’s inside toilet (5)[-----], could you explain further?
      Thanks.

        Sorry, in my first comment I meant to write "synonym" rather than "anagram" - senior moment! In 2D2DMember of empire’s inside toilet (5)[-----] the pronunciation of INCAN2DMember of empire’s inside toilet (5)[-----] is different from IN CAN; "apparently" in the clue highlights that difference, I believe. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

          In think "Incan" refers to a person of the Inca empire, so it doesn't have to sound like "in can", just to look like it.
