Mindhorn is set to take you right back to the 80s – although set in present day when former TV star Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) and his ‘robotic eye’ are brought out of retirement nearly four decades after his hit TV show aired when a criminal declares Mindhorn his nemesis.

Joining Barratt are Essie Davis, Andrea Riseborough, Harriet Walter, Simon Farnaby and Steve Coogan with Sean Foley in the directors chair.

Check out the brand new images in our gallery below which you can click to enlarge along with some others that we’ve seen previously.


Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s 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/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).
