Sometimes, clues just seem to fall nicely into place. This was one of those times.

    Nice one! Think the enumeration for 1D
    1D QUINTETTen playing in desert - or half as many? (7)
    should be (7) though, right?

      Oops! Thanks for the catch

      Lovely clues. 1D
      1D QUINTETTen playing in desert - or half as many? (7)
      in particular was a great bit of misdirection. I couldn't work out how to get the PSY from "afterthought , at last" though. Could you fill me in?

        Glad you enjoyed it. My "afterthought" gives "PS" as in post-script; the "at last, really" gives the Y.

          Gah! That's a really good clue and I'm disappointed I didn't work it out myself!
