Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit eighties detective show Mindhorn, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally ‘see the truth’. Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).
Directed by Sean Foley, and co-written and starring Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby, Mindhorn is British comedy at its best. Cast also includes Russell Tovey, Andrea Riseborough, Jessica Barden, Harriet Walter and Steve Coogan.
