A bit of a tester to finish the week from Felix, I think. I was held up at the end by my LOI 1A, not knowing the Dickensian character despite the hint in another clue. I also failed to spot one of the hidden answers for some time, finishing in 6:44 - well over my target time. Some nice clues though. My favourite for the great surface is the bibulous 10A, although I did enjoy the reminder of my first job at 11A. Thank-you Felix. How did everyone else get on? [Edit: There is a bit of a literary theme - thanks Kevin for spotting that; see his comment below].
