Work Ben undid without being asked (8)


I believe the answer is:


'without being asked' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'work ben undid' is the wordplay.
'work' indicates anagramming the letters.
'benundid' anagrammed gives 'UNBIDDEN'.

(Other definitions for unbidden that I've seen before include "Spontaneous - not invited" , "Without having been invited" , "Not commanded" , "Without being asked" , "Uninvited, spontaneous" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
