Trivia

Although set in the fictional nation of Tazbekistan, the series borrows heavily from real life personalities in Central Asia. The behavior of Prince Mark, Duke of Bath (Tom Hollander), including his speech criticizing the left-wing press in the UK and their investigation of business dealings in Tazbekistan, is remarkably similar to a 2008 visit to Kyrgyzstan by Prince Andrew, Duke of York, where he criticized the left-learning Guardian newspaper. The Tazbeki dictator's daughter Fergana (Lydia Leonard) also shares many similarities with Gulnara Karimova, daughter of the president of Uzbekistan, including an amateur music career and controversial party-girl public image.

Mitchell & Webb's best outing since Peep show
30 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ambassadors is set in the fictional country of Tazbekistan,with Mitchell playing British ambassador Keith Davis and Webb his trusty aid. It is divided into three,one hour long episodes. I would class this as comedy/satire and found it very well acted(great cast) and highly enjoyable as you watch the British move from one disaster to the next while at the same time struggling with there new place in the world order! This is a show with many references to British culture but this is not vital to the plot and I would highly recommend it to people from any nation.Finally I must reiterate that Tazbekistan is not a real country,so NSA if you are reading this there is no point trying to bug them or there leaders......my telephone seems to be clicking so I better go!(quiet voice) Lets hope for a second series.
