PLUS! – Special Features

  • The Bad and the Ugly
    Everyone loves to hate a villain, from soaps to westerns. John Binns asks why, deep down we all love the bad guys...
  • Hold on, isn’t that…?
    The villain is not always who he or she seems, and sometimes looks just like the hero!
  • The Fall of Villains…
    Is there a more stylish way to go out than falling to your doom?
  • How could we forget…?
