Surprising to find a thread on this so early in the piece, but what the heck!

Androcles is an anag of Colanders

All answers begin or end in A.

I have 3 left
27 Misty weather at the outset? Have a coffee (5)
56 Tut! Alias concealed the kidnapped man (8)
83 Girl in second place was dressed with scruffy rags when nasty beasts appeared (10)

Looking for directional clues rather than answers at this stage..

The girl in second place means the answer to Q2; then anagram the answer with rags; snap to it.
