It ain't so. As a TOE I've spent a lot of time having to read about Will (not that I wouldn't have anyway, of course!), and all the signs point towards the fact that he really was the only one that COULD have. The stars were all lined up on the day he blew into London.

But on a somewhat related note, I am now convinced that Truman Capote gave Harper Lee "To Kill a Mockingbird" as a present, because she was one of his few childhood friends and always stuck with him. There's just too many clues that he is indeed the author.

"I'm of the view that it's not a question that is even worth asking. The plays are Shakespeare; it is they which are fascinating," said Michael Clamp, an editor on the Cambridge School Shakespeare series.

This just about sums it up
