As I was in Warsaw yesterday I picked up a Daily Telegraph for the cryptic crossword. I need the answers to 10 across, 18 across, 19 down and 6 across. Please help!
Also the quick crossword, 24 across and 17 across.

If you posted the actual clues then I might be able to help! I don't have the Daily Telegraph as I don't read tabloids.

I would, but my computer is acting funny. I have to type y for z and z for y and speechmarks come out as a Polish ę or ą.

18 across looks like it could be "safe" and 24 across may be "plenary". 10 across and 19 down make my brain hurt and 26 across confuses me.

"Your room...it's CLEAN!!!"
"I prayed to God...and...it happened...but...where's my million dollars and horse!? Damn it!"

Yes I thought it was "safe" too but I don't know why. Explain "plenary" please.

Fullness or something of the sort.

"Your room...it's CLEAN!!!"
"I prayed to God...and...it happened...but...where's my million dollars and horse!? Damn it!"

Do you have cryptic crosswords on the other side of the pond?

Probably, but I wouldn't know much about it.

Cryptic
10 across - You lost me on that one!
18 across - either safe or sure
26 across - line (song and dance), lilt(song +dance), Lore(writing), I don't think any of these fit but they're all I can find.
19 down - fastness (meaning a secure place)


Quick x-word
24 across - Plenary??

You could always ask a Telegraph reader to look up the solution!

Yes, but I can only pick up a copy in a major Polish city. I happened to be in Warsaw so I bought a copy. The next day I was back in my home town with no access to the solution.

Well, "plenary" was a revelation. Never heard of that one before and I was very grateful for it. The others...you see the problem with cryptic crosswords is that you may have an idea what the answer is, but you have to justify it to yourself 100%. Like "Peter is not at risk" = safe...yeah that makes sense of the 'not at risk' part, but how does Peter fit into it? Is there a Peter Safe who I've never heard of?
