Times Quick Cryptic 1711 by Orpheus

A fast start to the week for me - yesterday's and today's both in 8 minutes. The top half flew in and then I worked just as fast down the right hand side. The left made me pause but, even with a couple of unknowns, the clueing was clear enough to keep some momentum.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

My solving time was off the scale but somewhere in the region of 80 minutes as I lacked some of the required GK. I expect our aspiring champions will have sailed through it but I shall be more interested to find out how others got on, and whether it was just me having a bad day? I had a few quibbles along the way which I shall mention below.
