Crossword

This is a cryptic crossword, but not too difficult (i.e. not quite up to Araucaria’s standard).

The theme is given by the solution to this clue:

Empty dude goes through door and finds most of prostitute (no, it isn’t “Torchwood”) (6,3)

(Which indicates the level of difficulty, I guess. Alternatively, you can just look at the blog header!)

Or if that’s too easy, this might be a bit more of a challenge.

The theme this time is given by the answer to this clue:

Programme returns fish to rock outcrop? Head off cries of joy! (6,3)

Note – clues in quotes share a common attribute, and star the (slightly concealed) person to whom they are attributed.
