Are talk shows being withdrawn next? (5)
I believe the answer is:
'next?' is the definition.
(I've seen this in other clues)
'are talk shows being withdrawn' is the wordplay.
'shows' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'being withdrawn' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'retal' is hidden within 'are talk'.
'retal' reversed gives 'LATER'.
(Other definitions for later that I've seen before include "Alert (anag.)" , "Following" , "At a time in the future" , "there's more behind" , "behind schedule" .)
