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.

Great wit and comic acting
2 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I cannot understand the odd really rubbishing reviews that have appeared here and there of Ambassadors ; almost as if there is a hidden agenda. There are so many 10 star reviews, of which I agree, that to give 1 star is really perverse. For myself (and my wife) we found Ambassadors the wittiest, most original production we have seen for a long time. It was interesting to read a former member of the British Diplomatic Service stating how near reality it was; I suspected that it was and it was good to have this underlined. Both Mitchell and Webb were superb here; I have not always been a fan of their skit shows, but this was clever comic acting at its best. I would love to see a further series, but if that is not forthcoming then another Mitchell and Webb production using this characterful and entertaining format would be a winner.
