Times Quick Cryptic No 1719 by Joker

This was a good solid Quick Cryptic to finish the week. I didn't find it as hard as the last two days and finished just a whisker under my target time of 5 minutes. I do sometimes struggle a little with longer words and, if they don't leap out at me, I generally leave them until I've got some checkers. We have some testing long anagrams today, which are a case in point - is this a bit of 5D from our setter? 1A and 10A are not the easiest but I saw 1D straightaway. The appropriately numbered 8A was my FOI and 16D my last. COD to the cheeky 17A. Thank-you Joker! How did you all get on?
