Spotted — an oddly geeky-looking Will, propping up the bar in Cave’s video filling in a crossword, though, according to this account, he was filling it in using his own answers: “Later, while I was aimlessly wandering around waiting for the lighting to be set-up or some such technical detail I took a look at Self’s crossword. He had filled it all in but with words that bore no relation to the clues. These were all proper words. In fact they were proper Selfian, or is it Self-ish words like: perfidy, carillon, phylum and quincunx. And they all slotted into the crossword grid perfectly. It was a revelation to me. Nobody I have now asked has ever seen a crossword done like this before.”
Will is going to appear on Comey Lab: Karl Pilkington — Satisfied Fool on Channel 4 on October 22, 11.05pm. “After disappointing exam results nineteen years ago, Karl Pilkington looks to find out if more intelligence and knowledge will make him happy by meeting some well-known intellectuals.”
