Cryptic Crossword November 2019

Forward! Here’s my latest monthly puzzle. (Scroll down for browser-playable version.) Hope you enjoy it. Thanks to Soup for a test-solve, and some suggestions for tweaks and improvements. Feedback, comments and whatnot welcome as ever on email or Twitter. Solution will go up here in a week’s time.

Meanwhile, I have three (!) other crosswords in various pipelines. Hopefully at least one of them will surface shortly. All that lot means I’ve dropped back a little in my schedule, so I’m a touch behind on my December puzzle. Not too much though, so back to work on that…
