I tried "Helen Reddy" for the "hear me roar" clue because her song "I Am Woman" has the following lyric: "I am woman, hear me roar....". Didn't think of Katy Perry. Drat!

Lamborghini's doors are different, they're pivoted rather than hinged. Still groovy, but different.

I tried bat-wing and bird-wing, but just couldn't think of gull-wing. I tried computers but no internet, and probably every other sport ever played in England but no croquet. I'm going to make myself a cup of coffee now. I need to wake up my brain.

Bats definitely do not have their wings mounted on their bodies like a Delorean, or like any kind of bird, for that matter. Bats are mammals, so their wings are actually analogous to our arms; regular car doors would evoke bat wings much more than a Delorean! (I ❤️ 🦇🦇🦇)

I've never heard the term "wing door." They're always called "gull wing doors," because they look like the outspread wings of a seagull. I suppose they do look like the wings of some other birds, but the seagull was the one that people keyed on when they were introduced.

Second the Merc comment and it was Mercedes who invented them. Other notables include the current Tesla Model X, but Tesla call them Falcon wings for some reason. There was even a Canadian sports car (and I use the term warily), called a Bricklin which used them. Lamborghini use guillotine (or switchblade or scissor) doors which pivot upwards and outwards from the front of the door frame. Very classy and good for tight spaces.

Clue for French fries, if the answer is frites, should really be just fries. Fries are to frites as French fries (or freedom fries or whatever) are to pommes frites, one is the shorter colloquial, one longer.

Valid point, but the reality is that anyone who is entering 'Henry' almost certainly knows it was Henry VIII as he is famous for his falling out with the Pope, being excommunicated, and this setting up his 'own' church.

That is not the reality. The reality is, there is little variation in the names of the kings. So if a king is mention the answer is usually henry, if that doesnt work it is usually william, if that doesnt work, there are only a few others to try. but 90% of the time you will get it by answering henry or william.

It might be worth accepting "yon" for the antonym of hither. Most dictionaries list both "hither and thither" and "hither and yon" as idioms, with the same meaning.
