Crossword Genius

Show new spirit (5)


I believe the answer is:


'spirit' is the definition.
(I know that demon is a type of evil spirit)

'show new' is the wordplay.
'show' becomes 'demo' (I've seen this before).
'new' becomes 'n' (common abbreviation eg NT for New Testament).

(Other definitions for demon that I've seen before include "Inspiring force" , "ace" , "See 3" , "beast" , "Evil spirit, devil" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror and The Daily Express.
