    Masterfully done! I love your constructions. It turns out I didn't know who Grace was... but I think you'll be amused to know I arrived at the answer under the assumption she was a Peter Pan character 😂. Thanks Oliver! :)

        Very nice, thanks! I’d appreciate a parse on 4D, it’s the only one that’s eluded me

          Hi! Thanks for solving.
          4D is G + UTTER + S "channels" is the definition. G = agent; UTTER =to reveal; S = the source of (first letter in) "secret".

            Ah of course, totally fair. Thanks!

          Great stuff as usual, im way below you other geniuses as usual... im missing something with 7a, as best I can tell beginning is doing double duty to get the t from the and the s from suffering

            Hi! Thanks for the reply. T = "the" in my list of abbreviations; S = the beginning of suffering.

            Bravo. The Wikipedia on Grace Darling was an added delight.

              Many thanks! In the North East of England, my old stamping ground, Grace Darling is a local heroine.
