The Diplomat released on DVD 14th March 2011
From The Producers Of Flood & The Day Of The Triffids - The Diplomat Is An Intricate And Fast-Paced Action Thriller That Charts A Dangerous And Duplicitous Game Played Between The Secret Services And A Radical Terrorist Cell.
When Scotland Yard intercepts a massive heroin shipment, British diplomat Ian Porter (Dougray Scott) is the prime suspect, thanks to his known association with notorious drugs trafficker, Krousov. Yet when an attempt is made on Porter’s life, the strange behaviour of both Porter and MI6 leads the Yard to a staggering conclusion: Porter is not simply a British ambassador to Tajikstan but an MI6 operative sent undercover to expose Krousov’s terrorist contacts. Chief Inspector Hales (Rachael Blake) offers to cut Porter a deal to turn on Krousov and in return, enters Porter and his estranged wife (Claire Forlani) into the Yard’s International Witness Protection Scheme in Sydney, Australia. When a Cold-War nuclear bomb goes missing, the race is on to uncover Porter’s involvement and prevent a global disaster, with or without MI6’s help. In the murky world of the Secret Services, no one and nothing is as it seems...
