On this first episode, a break-in at her official residence forces Harriet Smith into making the hardest choice of her career, just as she's found happiness with her new lover.
THE AMBASSADOR II is a thrilling drama set in a world of deception, mistrust and betrayal. Academy Award® nominee Pauline Collins (Shirley Valentine, Upstairs Downstairs) stars as the widowed Harriet Smith, the British ambassador to Ireland, one of the country's most coveted – and potentially explosive – Embassy posts. Supported by her commercial attaché and MI-6 operative John Stone (Denis Lawson - Star Wars, Bleak House), the Ambassador uses her diplomatic skill and common sense to bravely face a sinister and dangerous world far removed from the cocktail parties of Downing Street.
