Hit comedy Mindhorn is coming to DVD and Blu-ray in September and is now available to pre-order from Amazon.co.uk.
The film stars Julian Barratt as washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft whose career peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, in which he plated 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).
Directed by Sean Foley from a script based on a Simon Farnaby (Yonderland, Horrible Histories) original idea, and co-written by 2016 BIFA nominated Julian Barratt, Mindhorn also stars 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).
The DVD and Blu-rays feature reversible covers designed by the legendary Graham Humphreys.
Extras include an audio commentary with Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby, a Mindhorn featurette, the Clive Parnevik stunt master-class, in ‘the mind of Mindhorn’, a Richard Thorncroft interview and the hilarious music video ‘You can’t Handcuff the Wind’.
