I am still stuck on the cryptic. Please help...
34a Nothing to be gained by going back in a fifty
35a He is taken in by hopelessly ardent supporter
39a Curved structure on front of vintage Jag is an ideal example
41a It makes you wake up in a panic
44a Develop plan in use for headland
47a Short-lived fashion commercial shown after false start
30d Lowering the worth of the French holding, dear?
43d Remove bullets from gun and share your troubles
45d Half the news and two editors required
64d Note holder on fridge is a crowd puller
Thank you in advance
Would you find crock wrestling a little less traumatic a pastime?
As this was my first finished cryptic someone will have to check me on this, but here's what I had.
34a Nothing to be gained by going back in a fifty NIL
35a He is taken in by hopelessly ardent supporter ADHERENT
39a Curved structure on front of vintage Jag is an ideal example ARCHTYPE

Tryagain, what a comment eh?!!
I go along with striker's submissions but one. For 39a I have ARCHETYPE
43d = unload
45d = needed
64d = magnet
Thanks Dutchy. I did have ARCHETYPE - just typo while late on night shift! This makes me more confident that I have actually completed my first cryptic!
Thank you so much to Striker and Dutchy.
Colossus 114 - Crack the Cryptic
61a. Hesitated when Vera wed by arrangement

Hope this helps, good luck.
Thanks so much for your help!
I can't believe I only found out this site existed!
What do you have for 17d - head of police travels about aimlessly and demonstrates
Have "PROVES" for 17 down.
Thankyou very much! You truly are the 'Guru'
