Synopsis:

Washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft peaked with hit 1980s detective show 'Mindhorn', playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a rather unique ability. As a captured MI5 Special Operative, Bruce Mindhorn's eye was replaced by a super-advanced optical lie detector, which meant he could literally 'see the truth'. Mindhorn escaped and fled to the Isle of Man, to recuperate in the island’s temperate microclimate, and became the best plain-clothes detective the island had ever seen... Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands only to speak to “Detective Mindhorn”, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumph for one last chance to reignite his glory days and professional credibility.
