British acting legend Pauline Collins OBE (Shirley Valentine, Dickensien) stars as The Ambassador in this powerful BBC drama from award-winning, BAFTA-nominated Russell Lewis (Inspector Morse, Endeavour), which originally aired in 1998 and now makes its UK DVD premier courtesy of Simply Media.

Harriet Smith is the newly appointed British ambassador to Ireland; recently widowed, this sharp-witted confident woman, holds one of Britain's most coveted and powerful Embassy posts and has unenviable task of quelling the mounting tensions between the two countries. She must perform a delicate balancing act between raising her two teenage sons and the demands of her career.

John Stone (Denis Lawson - Bleak House, Star Wars) is Harriet's determined commercial attache and main aide. But the ever-crafty Stone also works for another master - MI6.

Harriet finds herself in a sinister and dangerous world far removed from the cocktail parties of Downing Street. Entangled in a complicated web of half-truths and withheld information - rife both in and outside of the Embassy walls - Harriet is up against a host of people who would love nothing more than to see her fail.

This heart-pounding political drama makes its UK DVD debut as The Ambassador: Complete Collection, featuring series one and two, on 25th July 2016 courtesy of Simpy Media.
