For the fourth and final season of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, London escort Belle (Dr. Who's Billie Piper, who could pass for Kylie Minogue's cousin) picks right up where she left off--until she runs into Stephanie (Cherie Lunghi). Now behind bars, the Discreet Elite madam convinces Belle to take over her business and to look after her daughter, Poppy (Lily James), who assumes they work as corporate headhunters (a rude awakening awaits). Belle also considers an offer to turn her memoir into a movie, which leads to a disastrous trip to New York. While she's away, dominatrix Charlotte (Gemma Chan) appoints herself boss, and Poppy goes a little nuts. New distractions aside, Belle continues to see bar manager Ben (Iddo Goldberg), her somewhat drippy, if devoted boyfriend. During these eight episodes, Belle's clients include a hard-to-please attorney (Adam Astill), a big baby (James Wilby), a wrestling fanatic (Dan Li), a tragic vampire (Alex Lowe), and a persistent detective (Paul Nicholls) who insists he's her perfect match. By the end, Belle has to decide whether she wants to give up her job and stay with Ben, go off with the copper, or give single life a try. Though made for Britain's ITV2, Secret Diary of a Call Girl follows in the footsteps of sexually liberated Showtime staples like Queer as Folk and The L Word, though Belle's first-person narration and over-the-top outfits also bring HBO's Sex and the City to mind--even if Carrie Bradshaw never wore quite so much make-up. Sadly, the extras are on the skimpy side: a photo gallery, text-based biographies of the principal players, and an unlisted blooper reel, which plays directly after the finale. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

See how the final season of Secret Diary of a Call Girl concludes with all 8 sexy and sophisticated episodes of the sensuous Showtimer series.

Before I comment on Showtime's "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" which just wrapped up its concluding season, I must ponder the curious announcement of the Final Season (Season Four) DVD release. Lions Gate owned the rights for the first two seasons and Paramount is releasing this season, but it begs the question--just who owns the rights to Season Three and what's going on? At first, I assumed this might be a compilation of the last two seasons--but with a listing of one disc at 187 minutes, this does not seem to be the case. I researched outside of Amazon in the event their listing was erroneous, but I have encountered the same information at alternate sources. So where is Season Three? And without it, is there really much of a market for this product at this time? I will just say that pivotal relationships evolved in Season Three as did Belle's career and to skip the entire story sequence is doing a great disservice to this spry and entertaining show. But, be that as it may, I will serve up some specific comments relating to the Final Season.

Season Four begins with the on again/off again relationship of best friends Hannah/Belle (Billie Piper) and Ben (Iddo Goldberg) in newfound stability. But the couple is destined for continued stresses and strains. As much as Ben seems to want to be relaxed in the coupling--Belle's unorthodox obligations perpetually drive a wedge between them. One of the season's largest plot lines revolves around Belle's boss (the criminally underutilized Cherie Lunghi) going to jail and her naive daughter living with Belle. Belle must now juggle Lunghi's job as appointment setter (I'm using a polite euphemism) as well as the secrets she has kept from her child.

SDoaCG has always been fun and racy, but much of what has made it great for me is the creativity of the writers and the great characters that I've grown to really like. In Season 3 we had Bambi, a great character, getting romantically involved with a client, and Belle had some really interesting clients herself. A romance gone wrong and another potential romance on the way. And Belle, as always, was brave and beautiful and so caring for her clients.

Something changed big time in Season 4. You immediately know it, b/c Belle has returned from a client getaway to suddenly be living in a house, rather than a flat - we don't get any explanation as to how this change happened so quickly, and the house doesn't add anything at all to the ambiance of the episodes, no character at all. The opening credits music has changed dramatically - why would they change that detail in the final season? It sucks. And two great characters - Bambi and her love interest - have disappeared with no explanation! They are replaced with a whining college student and a dominatrix, who just don't fill in that gap very well and are mostly kind of irritating. (Okay, the dominatrix has a few fun scenes.)

I think the writers must have changed as well b/c it just doesn't have that playful romp and great dialogue that it used to. It seems ponderously heading towards its death after 8 episodes. And the final episode is just not terribly satisfying and seems really rushed. (Well, each episode is only about 21 minutes, so I guess they had to rush it!)

I would recommend that if you can get ahold of Season 3 (hard to in the US, might need to visit some file sharing websites), just watch that, finish up at the end of that season, and just skip Season 4. It doesn't even seem like the same universe as the previous 3.

3.0 out of 5 stars Belle's Finale Fizzles August 19, 2011
By Ramm
Format:DVD
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. For those that are perplexed at the lack of availability in North America of the third season ( I agree - what the heck!?!) the 3rd Season IS out there but only in a Region 2 PAL version (available from Amazon.UK) - yet another good reason to get a 'region free' DVD player!

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.
