I thought this was a thoughtful and elegant treatment of a simple idea, with some very good clues. The four-letter answers seemed the key to placing other answers so I made sure I had all those answers early on. Fortunately I'd used CUIT in a clue of my own, so the tricky clue to UNIT didn't hold me up. I think I'd almost completed the grid before I had the complete message from extra letters, but they confirmed what I had done. I appreciated WATFORD from the circled cells - it rounded the theme of nicely. Replies: There have been no replies.
