The Times and Sunday Times are different newspapers, so their puzzles are edited by different people, and this will happen sometimes - like the same answer in the Times and Guardian puzzles on a particular day. I don't think you'd ever see the same answer on successive days in the Times puzzle.

Yes...so I called it a coincidence and not an oversight.

The Sunday Times is much easier isn't it? I used to think earlier that I fare better with it than the weekday puzzles, because I do it at home in a more conducive environment. Learnt soon that it's a different puzzle altogether.
