This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 74, Blocks: 38 Missing: {JQVXYZ} This is the debut puzzle for Mr. Bain. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Jim Horne notes:

The theme is DOUBLE HEADERS. Four theme answers consist of two words that can be made into new words by appending HEAD to each. So, "Thor, for one" is THUNDER GOD which becomes THUNDERHEAD and GODHEAD. Similarly with WARHEAD and BRIDESHEAD, STEELHEAD and DRUMHEAD, DEADHEAD and LETTERHEAD.
