I have an answer too, which I have a feeling is right, although I can't really see why.

The 2 isn't significant.

Actor Patrick would be another clue.

Well, I was right, then, but I'm not sure why.

The answer backward, less double ewe, is in Hebrew woman. If I get another in 53 pages time, I might need to work on my clues.

Ah, okay.

Perhaps something like "2 sheep, we hear" would have been helpful.

It's curious how much a slight departure from the conventions throws you. I didn't realise it was quite so rule-bound an activity as it turns out to be.

It's been done: "brogue" became "brogues". But I agree: that way lies anarchy and chaos, and the breakdown of civilised norms.
