Listener 4376 - Trapped by 'Eck

I agree that there are too few comments on recent Listener crosswords, which does not seem fair to the setters who must appreciate our feedback, so I thought I would start this thread.

The preamble suggested that the endgame may be complicated and I spent too long looking for an impediment, not realising that the "bad dreams" was the impediment!

We were held up for a while by thinking that the extra letter in 23a was d for "bend" rather than t for "bent", but you expect that in a Listener!

We loved 26a, having first thought the answer must begin with a v - no, it was r and v out of Bovril!
