The State Within (2006) is a six-episode British television political drama, written by Lizzie Mickery and Daniel Percival, produced by Grainne Marmion as a joint BBCBBC America production, that was broadcast by BBC1 in the United Kingdommarker from Thursday, 2 November 2006.

The protagonist of The State Within is Sir Mark Brydon (Jason Isaacs), the British Ambassador to Washington at the centre of a political conspiracy threatening to depose Western governments. As such, he must prevent a war, while facing a personal dilemma. Lynne Warner (Sharon Gless) is the United States Secretary of Defense, Nicholas Brocklehurst (Ben Daniels) is the British Counsellor External Affairs, and James Sinclair (Alex Jennings) is the former British ambassador to the fictional former Sovietmarker republic of Tyrgyzstan. This character resembles the "diplomatic untouchable" Craig Murray, the drinking, womanizing British ambassador who became embroiled in revealing human rights abuses in Uzbekistanmarker.

In 2006, Episode One of The State Within drew 5.7 million viewers, but, by Episode Three, the audience was 3.1 million. On 22 January 2007, this political drama was published on DVD. In the U.S., its premiere broadcast, on BBC America, was the Presidents Day weekend (17-19 February), as a three-part miniseries concluding on 24 February 2007. In the UKmarker BBC Four re-ran the miniseries in June 2007, as part of its Conspiracy U.S.A. Week programming.

The State Within was nominated for a Golden Globe in the category, Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
