Well done! Style suggestion: capitalize first word in every clue. It'll look more like the way Quizmaster does it.

I agree with you that here, a capital letter at the start of each clue looks better, so sure, am happy to do that. Quizmaster and I do have differences of approach in many areas, both in style and the answers we allow, but I think we respect where each other is coming from.
