Cryptic crosswords for beginners: doctors

In the example clues below, I explain both parts of each: the definition of the answer, given in bold type, and the wordplay – the recipe for assembling its letters. In a genuine puzzle environment, of course, you also have the crossing letters, which greatly alleviate your solving load. The explanations contain links to previous entries in this series on such matters as spelling one word backwards to reveal another. Also, setters’ names tend to link to interviews, in case you feel like getting to know these people better.

How does it work?

How do crossword setters enjoy indicating letters in an answer? As abbreviations for words in the clue, of course! And how do you abbreviate “doctor”? Naturally, it is “Dr”.

So it is clear what to do with at least the first word of Hectence’s clue:

23dDoctor on round longs to be amusing (5)
[wordplay: abbreviation for “doctor”, next to (“on”) letter that is round + abbreviation for “long” twice (“longs”)]
[DR + O + LL]
[definition: amusing]

So the “doctor” in the clue becomes the DR of the answer, DROLL. Class dismissed.

It is not always that simple

Except … the doctor in the clue may not be explicitly described as a doctor. Here is a recent one from Imogen:

17acGP moves cautiously and cleans out bed (7)
[wordplay: abbreviation that can be substituted for “GP” + synonym for “moves cautiously”]
[DR + EDGES]
[definition: cleans out bed]

So it is a different kind of bed – and it is DREDGES. Hang about, though, you may be thinking: what about that “GP” itself? Can we flip it? Can a clue’s “doctor” be an answer’s GP? Carpathian certainly thinks so, kicking off a quiptic (the Guardian’s weekly “puzzle for beginners and those in a hurry”) with this:

1acAttract doctor with fashionablefastener (7,3)
[wordplay: synonym for “attract” + abbreviation for “doctor” + synonym for “fashionable”]
[DRAW IN + GP + IN]
[definition: fastener]

So the doctor is a GP and the fastener is a DRAWING PIN. But hang about a little more, you may be thinking: are there not other abbreviations for doctors? Like the one that comes after rather than before the doctor’s name?

Well intuited. “Medicinae doctor” gives us MD and clues such as this, from the Observer’s entry-level Everyman:

1acDoctor touring Fife, lost and annoyed (6)
[wordplay: abbreviation for “doctor” outside of (“touring”) anagram of (“lost”) FIFE]
[MD outside of IFFE]
[definition: annoyed]

Also, in the armed forces, is the doctor not a medical officer? The setter Provis …

12ac Without principles, a doctor comes across really oddly (6)
[wordplay: A (“a”) + abbreviation for “doctor”, next to (“comes across”) odd letters of (“oddly”) REALLY]
[A + MO + RAL]
[definition: without principle]

… uses that for AMORAL, while Qaos prefers another kind of doctor …

26acAt the start of a month, before bored doctormade out (10)
[wordplay: abbreviation suggesting start of month, then old synonym for “before” inside (“bored” as a verb) abbreviation for “doctor”]
[DEC I, then ERE inside PHD]
[definition: made out]

… in a clue for DECIPHERED (as with all prize puzzles, the Guardian gives an annotated solution), reminding me of other doctors I have encountered in crosswords such as a DD (doctor of divinity), a DPhil (another doctor of philosophy), a BS (bachelor of surgery) and other Bs and Ds. Got all that?

Good, because here is the kicker. When I see “doctor” in a clue, I don’t start out by thinking of any of those abbreviations. Since “doctor” is also a verb meaning to alter the appearance of something, it falls into the near-endless list of words that setters use to indicate the meat and potatoes of cryptic crosswords. It is seldom done more pleasingly than by the setter and novelist Picaroon:

9acDoctor Liam Fox in a tensescrutiny of motives ()
[wordplay: anagram of (“doctor”) LIAMFOXINATENSE]
[definition: scrutiny of motives]

… in this clue for SELF-EXAMINATION.

Beginners: any questions? Setters and seasoned solvers: any favourite references to doctors or important devices that I have missed?

Machinist or surgeon? (8)

I believe this clue is a double definition.

'machinist' is the first definition.
(I've seen this before)

'surgeon?' is the second definition.
(thesaurus)

'or' is the link.

(Other definitions for operator that I've seen before include "Mechanic" , "Mathematical symbol" , "Person who directs or controls, machine say (8)." , "Driver" , "Person at switchboard, etc" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
