Re(1): Listener 4406 The Bard's Coupling

One of the best and one of the hardest. Two Playfairs for the price of one! I'm sure it was designed partly to defeat on-line Playfair solvers, but it was more fun doing it the hard way.
The only singleton I had for long time was FUTONS, so precious little for the main Playfair grid, but gradually I built enough for the second one.
I also wrongly guessed Sabre early on, assuming the setter's pseudonym would be well-known and short.

I was completely floored by the Tory reference in 30a, and it took me some time to get my head around that perplexing clue to FILLISTER.
