Negotiating a World of Deception, Mistrust & Betrayal

Harriet Smith (Pauline CollinsShirley Valentine, Upstairs, Downstairs) forges ahead as Britain’s Ambassador to Ireland, one of the country’s most coveted – and potentially explosive – Embassy posts. Supported by her Commercial Attaché and MI6 operative John Stone (Denis LawsonBleak House), Harriet uses both diplomatic skill and common sense to bravely face issues ranging from territorial disputes, kidnapping and cults to sabotage and murder. Continually under fire, the Ambassador treads a minefield of Anglo-Irish tensions as she strives to prevent her personal life from clashing with her professional career – and her duty to Britain.

By Michael Dobey on February 20, 2009
This series should surely appeal to fans of soap operas.
However that is only because we have a strong female character in a position of power who deals with her job and her romanantic life. This might seem like the kiss of death to a horror/action fan like myself but it is a series with good stories and excellent acting. Because of this you can enjoy this story with your lady friend or by yourself, because it's well done. And it's not like a soap opera because the stories are grounded in reality and believable. She must weave her responsibilties with her desire for a love life and this is hard for any middle aged person as it is!. This is a drama show and not a action series and it will definitely please many female viewers but it's also a good watch for anyone with a tolerance of romantic dramas starring middle age women characters. And it's good enough to be interesting beyond the tolerance level (for average guys) because of the great acting from it's lead and supporting actors. I won't go into the stories but they are about the U.K. ambassador in Ireland and that would be a tricky place for any public servant from the UK; and the stories are believable and not absurd and that says alot for a this type of drama.

Not as powerful as the firts series and the ending is abrupt and quite obviously meant to have lead onto a third series but never id--sadly.

I enjoy this series but there's something a bit tame about it. Or maybe the Ambassador is just too ladylike for my tastes. She does tackle interesting issues and is an interesting character but I can only watch this if I haven't anything better to watch.
