3.0 out of 5 stars HANNAH OR BELLE?, 26 Feb 2012
This review is from: Secret Diary of a Call Girl - Series 1-4 Complete [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Hannah takes care to keep her two lives apart. The one as call girl Belle lucratively provides the enjoyment. Will life as Hannah suffer in consequence?

Billie Piper shines, her natural charm and effervescence major reasons why the series works. There is far more humour than expected, especially with Belle's asides to camera explaining the tricks of the trade. Another attraction is Iddo Goldberg as loyal friend Ben. They would seem destined for each other, but only if Hannah renounces Belle.

The four seasons develop the theme of how life as Belle causes problems for Hannah, especially in Season 2 when Hannah meets Alex (Callum Blue) and falls genuinely in love. Later a book brings fame, but Season 4 sees things falling apart - an offer from America not as it seems but involving tacky exploitation. Time at long last to consider whether Belle is causing Hannah to sacrifice too much? A decision is reached....

Thirty two 22 minute episodes. Bonuses confined to "webisodes" in Season 2. (By the way, hang on after Season 4's final credits - unexpectedly there are a few outtakes.)

Too much over glamorized? Too much flesh? Not enough flesh? Viewers will decide. Some unexpected famous names involved, including - briefly - future Doctor Matt Smith. For many Billie Piper's performance may well prove the main reason to watch.
