Blogging from A to Z – Day 4 – Diabolical Detection



Welcome to day 4 of Puzzling from A to Z. In this puzzle we need  to do a little detective work.

The answers to the eight clues below can be found in the set of letters to their right. But in each set of letters there is one impostor letter that is hiding within hoping not to be detected. Can you find the left over letter in each set? When you place all the left over letters in order the name of  an old sci-fi show will be spelled out. Hold on to your answer this is the second meta answer that you’ll need for the contest I’ll be running at the end of the month.

Happy Detecting!
