Times Cryptic 27842

Solving time: 36 minutes. An enjoyable and varied challenge with nothing obscure and only a couple of references unknown to me. I've added a new comment to my standard blurb below.

As usual definitions are underlined in bold italics, {deletions and substitutions are in curly brackets} and [anagrinds, containment, reversal and other indicators in square ones]. I usually omit all reference to positional indicators unless there is a specific point that requires clarification. I apologise if seasoned solvers find that some of my explanations are too detailed or obvious, but I am increasingly aware that our readership is expanding by the day to include solvers making the journey from the Quick Cryptic to the 15x15 and my intention is to ease their path.
