I really enjoyed that "The Tides of Time" - particularly the 50 moments :D
I admit I'm not good enough to try the crossword although some of the clues spark recognition. Need to watch more, that's the answer ;)

The fifty moments was the best, and I was very pleased to do it; Graham and Sara proved to be really good editors of the piece too, keeping the sense of the moments I wrote up while reducing the size by about half.

I've not attempted the crossword!
