Times Quick Cryptic 1411 by Hurley

The top half went in on first glance but things changed the lower down the grid I got. This culminated with 14dn. In retrospect I’m not sure why it caused such a problem but I was aware of the clock clicking past the 10 minute target as I struggled to make it click.
Do have a look at 15ac.

As an aside (and with apologies if I missed any reference in yesterday's blogs) I would like to salute Barrington Pheloung (obituary in yesterday’s edition). I’ve always enjoyed the Morse books/TV and now I find that the music was full of what we here would call ninas:
