Re(6): Listener No. 4388: Cycle 20% More by Smudge

I had a similar experience to many others, it seems.

I found the clues really tough, so I concentrated on guessing the moving letters in the across clues. With three clues solved (!), I cracked G&S.

Luckily, googling "Gilbert Sullivan Secret Sign" gives a very helpful first hit.

So unfortunately the thematic material fell before the clues did, and the clues were a bit of a slog after that. However the realisations of eg batwoman were excellently done!

All in all, a very impressive amount of thematic material, well structured, but slightly let down by the clues being a bit too hard, leading many of us to a back-to-front solve.

Thanks to the setter!
