 This thematic puzzle from Smallikoff revolves around one of the grid answers, in the style of some of the thematics which appear in the Guardian. He has done well to get so many thematic answers into the grid, and has produced clues which almost all read smoothly - that's hard to do in this type of puzzle.  It's a difficult crossword and well worth the challenge.
