If I remember properly the answer to aquatic mammal is 'ship's cat'

Clues I have always liked ( 1 from the Guardian) is B (6,6)

and 1 which I reckon is apocryphal HIJKLMNO (5)

Well done on 'water'

'Second letter' is not correct. It was bottle opener !

Cannot get any of the other clues.

ABCDEFGHIJLKM = "Atom"

The flower of Florence = "Arno"

Is "Overburdened Mailman" a clue ? If so, my brain is working away at concepts like, "Letters of the utmost gravity", and such like. How many letters ?



By the way, £30 (9,7,3,8) = "Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras" (three tenners <g>).

These aren't lateral.

The first one's from Araucaria in The Guardian and is, for my money, the best crossword clue ever.

Poetical scene has surprisingly chaste Lord Archer vegetating
(3, 3, 8, 12)

The second one's just an anagram

But now we are on cryptic clues and agramans how about

Or...
