It was one of the best programs the BBC had produced in recent years, but shortly after Christmas of 2013 the BBC went very quiet about the show’s future. Then in the summer of 2014 there were rumors the show may not return. Finally, last Christmas it was leaked to the press that the series had offended Prince Andrew, and William Hague had ‘banned tweets and talk about the show at the Foreign office’. Quite why they are so concerned what Mitchell & Webb are doing at the Foreign Office is frankly beyond me. The BBC insisted this had nothing to do with the decision not to continue with the show, but this wouldn’t be the fist time a Mitchell & Webb related project has been axed due to upsetting the Royals (see Blocked).
So if you would like to help the campaign to bring back ‘Ambassadors’ you can! Just complain to the BBC here:

Remember if just a few people do this it will really make a difference. ‘Ambassadors’ was an amazing show! It’s not too late to change things.
Robert Webb has revealed that the finale of ‘Peep Show’ will be filmed in August with a view to being broadcast towards Christmas. .
He also revealed in the same interview that he and David are working on a new sitcom which is apparently ‘in the very early stages of development’, and also ‘That Mitchell & Webb Sound’ may be back in the not too distant future.
After the success of Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night I emailed Channel four to tell them what a great double act David and Jeremy Paxman made and suggested they should give them a spin off show together. I got a nice reply back, although obviously it didn’t confirm anything but who knows… Maybe we’ll be seeing more Mitchell & Paxman in the future.
Welcome to A Dose of David Mitchell. This fan site has been set up to celebrate David Mitchell by long standing fans who wanted to create a special site just for David. We hope to see it expand, develop and eventually become the first place any David Mitchell fan would come for their dose of David Mitchell (and Robert Webb too). So that’s the first post done, here’s to many more.
