Re(8): 6 Across by Shackleton

This was a classic Listener - crammed with thematic material - multi-layered with pdms coming at you at every turn - superbly tight clueing without a redundant 's or indefinite article - an extremely satisfying endgame that didn't require a lot of frustrating grid staring.

It took me quite a while to complete simply because at each turn of the puzzle I was drawn to re-read that episode in Shackleton's astonishing epic journey.

Upon completing the puzzle I also enjoyed re-reading Shackleton II's astonishing journey!
