    Anyone got this finished yet? I think I have, but there are two clues I am not sure of, although my answers seem to fit. 54 across, I think its The Bard, and 68 down, its probably tail.

    73 across is stayers, many steps are stairs, and those with stamina are stayers. 35 down is stops, 36d is meteor, 48 across is poetic, 26d is Rudolph.

    Hi

    54 ac is "the bard" anagram of breath and the initial (1st) letter of dying

    26 down : is you have 6 across then you have this clue as well Think of a Christmas song.
    35 down : there are three of them at the end of the clue.
    36 down is an anagram of a word in the clue!
    48 across : an anagram of 2 words in the clue.

    In exchange, could some give me a hint for 31 across please?

    54 across, the bard, is initially TB, the disease Shakespeare died of. 31 across is buds. (roots, buddies). If anyone else wants answers, give me the full clue as I have posted it in. Cheers.
