Crossword Genius

Handsome judge - and clever (12)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

considerable

Here is my best explanation:

'handsome' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'judge and clever' is the subsidiary indication.

'judge' becomes 'consider' (**).

'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'clever' becomes 'able' (I've seen this before).

'consider'+'able'='considerable'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for considerable that I've seen before include "Fairly large or numerous", "Significant", "Major", "tidy", "worth entertaining?", "Notably large", "Relatively large", "Large", "A lot (of) - worthy of respect" and "worthy of attention".)
