Mindhorn … the return of the buy-tonic man? (movie trailer).

Washed-up TV thespian Richard Thorncroft (played by real-life actor Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, playing a bionic Isle-of-Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally “see the truth”.

Decades later, when a deranged Manx serial killer demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).

The film stars Julian Barratt as Richard Thorncroft / Mindhorn and Simon Farnaby as Clive Parnevik, they are joined by Essie Davis (The Babadook, Games of Thrones) Russell Tovey (Pride, Being Human), Andrea Riseborough (Bloodline, Birdman) Jessica Barden (Far From The Madding Crowd), Harriet Walter (The Crown, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge, Philomena).

This flick is directed by Sean Foley from a script based on a Simon Farnaby (Yonderland, Horrible Histories) idea, and co-written by Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh).
