Secret Diary of a Call Girl is an ITV show that has been imported from the U.K. by Showtime. The first season aired in June, with season two starting on January 18. Billie Piper (Doctor Who) stars as Hannah, a London call girl known professionally as Belle. Hannah works at keeping her profession a secret from her family and friends who all believe that she works as a late-night legal secretary. During the first season we see Belle in various situations with her agency giving her stranger and stranger clients, and by the end of the season Belle has had enough and leaves the agency, deciding to be an independent call girl.
Continuing where the first season left off, Hanna is now an independent call girl, and has a protégé, Bambi (Ashley Madekwe), who wants to become a call girl because she thinks she can make lots and lots of money. Bambi is eager, headstrong, and good at getting into trouble because she won’t heed Hanna’s advice. Bambi answered Belle's phone at one point and talked to a client, and even after getting lectured by Belle took stupidity to the next level and answered an e-mail that Hanna would not respond to because she said it was suspicious. This culminated with Belle having to go rescue Bambi because Bambi agreed to meet the client in Belle’s place and things got weird.
Hanna also has a new complication in her life. In the season premiere Belle was to meet a client in a hotel bar and through a misunderstanding picked up the wrong person – Alex (Callum Blue). After the client called looking for Belle and Belle realized her mistake she accidentally left with Alex’s wallet and had to return it. When she returned it to Alex, he guilted her into going out with him, now Hanna is torn between her professional life and wanting to be a girlfriend for the first time in years.
