13 Has moved further away from the answer sought. Toulouse is indeed doubly convenient, and will be added to the list above

Some further pointers, if required:

 2. A byre? The residence of Nigel, who played Dr Watson. Lock and Barrel live elsewhere.
 4 .Her grandmother. "Her" refers back to number 3's answer.
 6. German tin could have been a can of WORMS, but periodically I choose to work symbolically.
 9. A deferential courtesy when the waiter presents the tab. You can bask in glory, we hear, when you get this one.
12. Number 11's alternative name - in Norway. What do Flemish speakers call it?
25. A celebration of tools. Get this right and you will have hit the nail on the head.
32. Please leave, Mr Stallone. You need to head West.
39. Westphalian eggs go well with it. Appropriately positioned at 39 for its role in the Endgame.
