Harriet Smith is the newly appointed British Ambassador to Ireland, and she has the unenviable task of quelling the mounting tensions between the two countries. Ambassador Harriet Smith (Pauline Collins), a sharp-witted, confident woman, holds one of Britain's most coveted and powerful Embassy posts. Recently widowed, Harriet must perform a delicate balancing act between raising her two teenage sons and the demands of her career. John Stone (Denis Lawson) is Harriet's determined commercial attache and main aide. But the ever-crafty Stone also works for another master - MI6.
As the UK's Ambassador to Ireland during a turbulent time for the two countries, 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. Harriet's personal life unavoidably spills over into her work, she faces seemingly insurmountable problems. As a mother, she's having difficulty relating to her children - and while she cares deeply about them, as the Ambassador, Britain must always come first...
