Storyline

Belle's handsome publisher Duncan criticizes her writing style, feeling more stress should be given to what really turns her clients on. In the case of nervous young actuary Simon, it's farmyard noises, which Belle feels unable to divulge and she finds her writing is better when she imagines Duncan is her fantasy sex partner. Ben is now a frequent visitor to her flat, to sleep with sister Jackie, much to Belle's annoyance, but Bambi finds Byron is becoming more to her than just a paying punter. Written by don @ minifie-1

Crazy Credits

The silhouette of a scantily-clad girl, apparently wearing nothing but high heels as she lazily relaxes, lying on her tummy with her lower legs casually drawn back, appears as a logo at the end. See more »

guys who aren't what they appear to be
19 February 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

I haven't watched any episodes up ahead, so I do not know for sure, my guess is as good as yours, but it is clear that the guys Belle and Bambi have in their sights, aren't what they appear to be. Byron, a lord, what is going on there? And Duncan is either married (though I doubt that) or married to his work and not interested in girls at all.

Okay, looking at what we've really got here, I liked the charmingly romantic bicycle bit, though Byron was a very unlikely candidate for that scene. I can only repeat, what is going on there? And sister Jackie is a very welcome addition to the cast, well, not officially, but to the story arc.

Animal crackers. Had there been episode names, that would have been the choice.

Billie Piper has got to have the most exquisite face...!
