Secret Diary Of A Call Girl S01E07 (ITV)

Billie Piper stars as Belle de Jour, a call girl from London. This show is based on the blog of Belle de Jour. She has written two books about her life and had been a contributing writer of the Telegraph until 2006. ITV has ordered a total of 8 episodes of this show.

Belle and Hannah lives become less separate as Ben becomes involved in Belle’s professional life. He wants to do a foursome with her and some clients. Ben is getting married to Vanessa soon. Hannah finds his request ludicrous, but in the end she relents. She is creating a lot of problems for her later on.

I thought this episode was alright. I found it funny how Belle managed to complicate her life even further. As if it wasn’t complicated enough to begin with. I wonder if this show will get renewed. As usual, this show primarily focuses on the positive aspects of being a prostitute. Whores have dangerous lives, no matter what clients or agencies they work with.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
