Discuss when the lecture's finished? (4,4)


I believe the answer is:

talk over

'discuss' is the definition.
(I know that discuss can be written as talk over)

'the lecture's finished' is the wordplay.
'the lecture' becomes 'talk' ('talk' can be a synonym of 'lecture').
'finished' becomes 'over' (similar in meaning).
'talk'+'over'='TALK OVER'

'when' is the link.

(Other definitions for talk over that I've seen before include "Discuss" , "Consider together - persuade" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard and The Globe and Mail.
