Ktee here on phone! x is the planet jupiter, as the juno probe arrived late last year. I think that viii is someone - possibly monty don? - who did a biography, my family and other dogs, the title based on my family and other animals by g durrell.

'on both sides of the shell'
This is not the answer at all, but they're totally missing the sad, sad death of lovely L Cohen, which was not as horrible as that f*cking referendum but still so, so rubbish.

The age of lust is giving birth, and both the parents ask
the nurse to tell them fairy tales on both sides of the glass.
And now the infant with his cord is hauled in like a kite,
and one eye filled with blueprints, one eye filled with night.

vi. would seem to be Margot Honecker

(the reference to 'lager' here meaning concentration camp rather than beer)

Not top of my list of 2016 lamented deaths.
