Product Description

All eight episodes from the fourth series of the ITV drama starring Billie Piper. By day, Hannah (Piper) is a respectable legal secretary who works long hours to make ends meet. By night she morphs into Belle, a prostitute who will stop at nothing to satisfy her clients.

From Amazon.co.uk

For one last series, Billie Piper returns for a fourth run of Secret Diary Of A Call Girl. And what ensues is, at heart, the winning mix of humour, drama and sex that’s helped the show become one of ITV2’s biggest successes.

Things are a bit different this time around though for central character Belle (Piper). She’s got the usual juggling act between her private and her professional life, but this time, she’s also got an escort business to manage, and a 19-year old girl to look after. Add in some romance, too, and there’s a lot packed into the episodes!

While not shaking up the formula, though, Secret Diary Of A Call Girl remains hugely entertaining drama, albeit one for an over-18 audience. Piper is clearly having a ball in the lead role, and she powers the show throughout its weaker moments. It’s more than a one-woman programme, though, and the supporting cast deliver solid work, too.

This is believed to be the final series of the show for ITV2, though, with prospect of a feature film lying ahead in the future. For now, though, enjoy another few episodes in the company of Belle and some of her extreme clients. She’ll certainly be missed from our screens. --Jon Foster

Wish I could say the the 'Final Season' (4) of Showtime's "Secret Diary of A Call Girl" ended with a 'bang' but (for me) it was more of a 'thud'. I really got into the whole mythos of 'Belle de Jour' - read all of her books (based on the infamous blog that launched the series) and really enjoyed the way that the TV series initially portrayed the characters and sexy situations that (the real) Belle described in her autobiography. Billie Piper was gorgeous & fresh as the liberated call-girl with a heart of gold, the tension between characters was nicely balanced, the dialog saucy, and even the 'tricks' were interesting & believable - with just enuf skin to remind you that this was an 'adult' cable show. Things moved very smoothly thru the first 3 seasons.

The 4th Season manages to chip away much that the show had working for it. Not to say that there aren't a few choice moments to be enjoyed during the 8 final episodes - but the series seems to have run out of gas (and ideas). The edgey chemistry between Belle and her 'best mate' wanna-be boyfriend, Ben, devolves into a lot of unattractive squabbling when they try to attempt a live-in relationship and a somewhat annoying new character, Poppy (daughter of Belle's temporarily incarcerated 'madame', Stephanie) is introduced to further muck things up. A new, rather un-likable, male 'detective' character is also injected as a counter-foil to Ben adding yet more aggravation to the mix. Generally, everything seems taken a bit too much to the extreme - Belle's 'clients' fetishes become comically absurd (less 'human' & sexy) and the make-up and hair styles manage to make even the lovely Ms Piper look like a trashy streetwalker much of the time.

The first episode of season one had us hooked and the show went from strength to strength and then seemed to hit a brick wall at season 4. Belle began to look cheap and lost all sense of "class", the fun and volatile relationship with Ben degenerated into frequent boring arguments and new characters were added seemingly to flesh out the series but failed to make a positive impression. From the pointless corrupt police officer to the two dimensional poppy.

Such a disappointment compared to the previous 3 series.

It was not only good but the best one yet! If you think it's 'all over the place' then you've never been a call girl, and certainly not Belle. They lead tumultuous lives and don't just go to the pub every Friday to finish a week. Often the hotels and clients are't enough and they want the risk, the wild side. Juggling three boyfriends, taking over an agency, the desire to sneak off on trains at 2am when it could easily cost a relationship.
I think a lot of call girls lead these frantic risky lives, with a lot of odd, fickle people in them, just like the detective. The 'bit much' is realistic, because the real Belle was probably getting film offers, and stranger and odder clients in real life after the book and maybe after her exposure.
Even if watching the series you just want to see what a prostitute does in London with her clients, and this is a bit removed from that and that's a stumper. You know the drill surely! When i had to decide between certain path and my boyfriend - i ended up walking away from both that and my boyfriend to focus on a something else just like Belle does. It is a realistic series. I think the woman who plays her manager is awesome. Poppy living with Belle is annoying. I think it's so realistic that the trust-worthy 'Yay my best friend and crush being a prostitute' Ben finally gives up the act. Males deserve an oscar if they deign to enjoy a female they care about being a prostitute. It ends on morals in season 4?? Which I liked -- Unless we want hordes of teenage girls to aspire to this work or your girlfriend when she's struggling? -To go off on Islands with rich clients? Ha. (Advert for the job, season 3 ending!!

I was curious to watch "Secret Diary Of A Call Girl: Season 4" both because it is based on a true story and due to my previous familiarity with Billie Piper. I own one of Billie Piper's greatest hits music collections (which is pretty good) and I have seen her in a few Dr. Who performances (also strong performances). Billie Piper gives an excellent portrayal as Hannah Baxter. Hannah Baxter happens to be an intelligent high class escort who is incredibly gifted in her job. Baxter's character is shown to be living in a lavish house and having clients from very affluent backgrounds. Hannah Baxter even ends up working temporarily as a London madam for her boss Stephanie (played in a fantastic way by Cherie Lunghi). Snippets from the song "You Know I'm No Good" by the late Amy Winehouse are used for the theme of "Secret Diary Of A Call Girl". It is made very obvious in season four that she makes a good living as a high class call girl and is even offered the chance to have her life story translated into a movie. By the way, the episode where the movie idea gets pitched to Hannah Baxter is extremely humorous. Hannah Baxter also deals with strong professional competition from Charlotte (played in a convincing way by Gemma Chan). In season 4, Hannah Baxter must also choose between Ben (well played by Iddo Goldberg) or her job. I confess that I think that "Secret Diary Of A Call Girl: Season 4" would make an interesting film. Obviously, it would also be a good idea to consult with the woman that the whole series is based on (to strengthen the plot and message of the movie). "Secret Diary Of A Call Girl Season 4"is best for those who like shocking and racy tv shows.
