Times Quick Cryptic No 1759 by Pedro

Pedro provides us with today's mental workout. I don't know about you, but I found it quite difficult and it took me over 50% over my target time finishing in 7:52. The clues are quite long which, to my mind, makes them harder to unravel. I took a while to see the long anagrams and work out some of the definitions, which didn't help. A good variety of clues, though and some entertaining wordplay. The SW corner held me up for a while, but LOI and COD was the clever 7D. Thank-you Pedro! How did you all get on?
[Edit: I see I was not alone in finding this hard for a QC, so don't despair if you did too. I would say this is very much at the top end of difficulty for a QC and those who manage it should be able to step up to the15x15.]
