me: Enjoyable wall, more medium than hard, though definitely one where it helps to be British. (3 days, 6 hours ago)

Kuba: I disagree about it being in the wrong category. e.g. if you don't know the Christie novels, the whole grid is hopeless. There are still a lot of things I haven't heard of, like Gatling Gun, or a Farthing being a coin... I am non-native. But still, this is definitely one that requires background knowledge to figure out.
It was good. (1 month ago)

Bob&Jenny: money!? (3 months, 1 week ago)

Liam: Put money instead of coin names but feel this should still count as should pre decimal coins (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Andrea: Nice grid, knowing Agatha Christie books well helped! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Soeli: Urgh - I was singing Elenor Rigby in my head but didn't get the connection even when it was shown to me! (4 months ago)

Richard: Jude is definitely a boy - in this case Julian Lennon.
The detectives might not practice Christianity. (4 months ago)

CP: 😍 (4 months, 1 week ago)

Ray kemp: Quite easy (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Bowiewhist: Great fun but dead easy - or maybe I am on a roll tonight. All done in 40 secs and spotted the groups instantly. Full marks. Nice but in the wrong category altogether. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Rodger: Huh.... Jude is short for Judith - nice grid ! (5 months ago)

Mo: Nice;0) (5 months, 1 week ago)

Katee: To MJH: Jude is not a girl's name (8 months ago)

Zander: Nice. Grids don't need to be impossible to be challenging. (8 months, 2 weeks ago)

martha: had fun doing this one. (8 months, 3 weeks ago)

Nighteyes: I don't agree with Bloomy. Some niche bands and writers count as specialist knowledge, but the Beatles and Agatha Christie fall into the category of General Knowledge. (9 months ago)

Enn: Good (though I'm mildly disgruntled that "Pre-decimal British currency" wasn't accepted). Some interesting red herrings. Perhaps a little easy, but fun! (10 months, 1 week ago)

Bloomy: You need specialist knowledge for this. As a huge Beatles and Agatha Christie fan I found this easy (1 year, 2 months ago)

Robert the Bruce: got only one line but all four reasons. Spud gun threw me out. (1 year, 2 months ago)

bristolstoolchart: THIS IS HARD AND NOT CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE TOP OF BEST GRIDS (1 year, 4 months ago)

Sue: Only managed one line (1 year, 4 months ago)

angua: Missed Agatha Christie (1 year, 8 months ago)

MJH: Beatles songs are interchangeable with a category of “girls names” (1 year, 9 months ago)

Lauren: I really liked this one! Especially the Beatles. (2 years, 5 months ago)

SueC4: Excellent! Missed the Beatles! Darn! (3 years ago)

OnlyConnect: Wouldn't accept British currency *grumble* (3 years, 11 months ago)

Woolfie: easy but enjoyable (3 years, 11 months ago)
