Times Quick Cryptic No 1389 by Izetti

A typically smooth and entertaining puzzle from Izetti for us today. One or two trickier clues, but I raced through this faster than usual in just over 4 1/2 minutes. I enjoyed the lovely surfaces for 15A and 6D in particular, but COD goes to the nice semi&lit at 14A. Trying to explain 4D gave me a bit of fun, though. Fortunately I live far enough away not to have to follow the advice of keeping my pets and children indoors. Sorry. I digress. As for the crossword as a whole.. great stuff, and a paragon of the QC genre! Well that's what I think... how did you all get on?
