The Secret Diary Of A Call Girl S02E02 (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.

This is the second show of the second season of the ITV show. In the last season finale, Belle had to decide between a super elite group of whores or being an independent escort. She tries out the first part and finds that it isn’t for her. Belle is still an independent escort and meets Bambi, a girl wanting to become one. Things go wrong when a freelance journalist followed her around after she refused to spill the beans on one of her famous clients. Belle thinks that she’s about to be outed.

Unlike what I initially expected, this show isn’t really about the world of prostitution. It almost idealizes what happens to sex-workers. I still find that the show doesn’t get into enough details about the life of a prostitute. It just skims the surface. Other shows like Californication and Weeds are able to delve deeper into issues while maintaining the same half hour format. Why didn’t Secret Diary?

If you keep in mind that this show is nothing more than a light dramedy, then you’ll be satisfied. Don’t expect it to tackle any earth-shattering issues. All in all, the show was OK, nothing more, nothing less. Other than that, Billie Piper is looking hot as usual.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
