Young monk’s drama over wrong habit (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

novice

Here is my best explanation:

'young monk's' is the definition.

'drama over wrong habit' is the subsidiary indication.

'drama' becomes 'no' (Noh or No is a Japanese masked drama).

'over' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'wrong habit' becomes 'vice'.

'no'+'vice'='novice'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for novice that I've seen before include "Salvage", "apprentice", "Convert", "Probationary nun/monk", "New member (of religious order)", "Acolyte", "Rookie", "New starter", "Tyro" and "Beginner, tyro".)
