Synopsis:

When MI5 Special Operative Bruce Mindhorn was captured in the late 1980s, his eye was replaced by a super-advanced optical lie detector, which meant he could literally “see the truth.” He escaped and fled to the Isle of Man, to recuperate in the island’s temperate microclimate, and today has become the best plain-clothes detective the island has ever seen.

Critical reaction:
  • All hail Julian Barratt, star of this exceptional – and exceptionally silly – British character comedy.

    David Jenkins, LITTLE WHITE LIES

  • There are such great gags, and it is acted with such fanatical gusto by Barratt that it’s impossible not to root for this unlikeliest of heroes ★★★★

    Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN
