A cool new route to take the Generator series! I'm not usually a cryptic puzzle kind of guy, but I took this for my cryptic-crossword-addict Mum whose wonderful funeral we held yesterday. I still can't work out Depressive partner, even with the answer visible (in red, of course), and am happy to stagger out of this quiz with 7.
