  • $\begingroup$ Does all punctuation get its own space? For 7 across, 19 across and 49 across the number of spaces in the grid is more than the clue length. $\endgroup$ – Fil-let's GoFundMonica Oct 19 '15 at 11:21
  • $\begingroup$ @Fillet I should have reduced the length of those ones, but as the grid is presented, punctuation does get a space. $\endgroup$ – Gordon K Oct 19 '15 at 11:32

    $\begingroup$ As you are running this, could you update the grid to show the answers that have been completed. That way we can see what's left. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – chasly from UK Oct 21 '15 at 2:43

I think this is now a complete solution! This was only possible due to the partial solutions from @Gabriel Guimarães, @Squeamish Ossifrage, @Hazel, @The Dark Truth and @Irishpanda, whose answers I copied in, and a comment by @Zandar. Of course, being a crossword, the partial solutions also gave at times prompts of additional letters.
