@bennattod,
Regarding Question 31 I have a feeling this has come up before. If memory serves me correct the nickname is "Stalky". But cannot find a link on Google!

@Opsimath,
Cheers Opsimath, penny dropped on no. 14. 25 & 31 still elusive. Not making much headway with the 'Cadfael' clue on 25. Perhaps I've got wrong lady first name for 37172, not many 5 letter female names with 2nd & 4th letter the same?

@Opsimath,
For some reason best known to myself I was overlooking the obvious one! Not got both 'names' now. Just wonder what I'm overlooking for #14.

@Ramires7,
Played by Sian Philips if I remember correctly. Take out the letters of that character and put the rest into the anagram solver; it comes up with a name which is a character in a recent series. That works with the rest of the clue.

Sorry, that wasn't very helpful, it was the wrong way round: Transpose the letters of that character into the long number, then put what you have into the one-look dictionary (sorry if that's teaching grandmother to suck eggs...) There aren't very many possibles in the list in produces. I then put the remaining letters into an anagram solver as a double-check.
