Sophia is a character in Harlots played by Hannah Dodd.

Sophia is the daughter of Lady Isabella Fitzwilliam, Heiress of Blayne and Lord Harcourt Fitzwilliam, Marquess of Blayne. Isabella and Harcourt are siblings; Isabella was raped by her brother but unbeknownst to him, she became pregnant and gave birth to Sophia while he was away in France. In order to protect her daughter, Isabella had Sophia sent away to a boarding school where she was well taken care of, but completely ignorant of her parentage. Isabella cut off all contact from her daughter after sending her a single letter explaining that it would be too dangerous to ever meet.

Bros, why is Harcourt's (Marquess of Blayne) hair so pretty???
  • Julian Rhind-Tutt as Harcourt Fitzwilliam, Marquess of Blayne 

Like I'm sorry guys I get he's disgusting and evil and shit but he's got the prettiest hair I've ever seen. On a man or otherwise. Can we talk about it???


Lady Macbeth of Brothel Keepers


It's because he conditions with the distilled essence of innocence and virgin juices. Wonderful spokesman for the Satanic version of Herbal Essences. 


Lol, my husband is a hair stylist and everytime they show Harcourt's hair, he calls it "glorious". So, I am inclined to agree. 


I mean this in the absolutely least offensive way possible, but does he not remind you of Bruce Jenner (Caitlyn Jenner, prior to coming out)? I can’t help but think that every time I see his face.


 Kitty Carter

That’s exactly it.


well after all the plastic surgeries


He reminds me of Alan Duke actually


Lol. I love his hair. It kinda makes him hot, which I hate to say. Why are the assholes on this show so sexy????




Thank god somebody else thinks that too! I was starting to think there was something very wrong with my taste in men. All those comments on Fallon's foppish handsomeness but none about the marquess?


I think it's Fallon's and Blayne's strong facial bone structures that keep them from looking too foppish even though their hair, wigs, and clothes are the height of foppish fashion.


Haha! I also think Lord Liddington is pretty hot, too. And Mr. North. To a much lesser degree, the new justice. Maybe it's the accent and time period lol


His stutter makes me so attracted to him. He stands up for what he believes no matter what and I love it.


The one that got a month of clink for scratching her muff  

Definitely the time period, because the Justice is a babe but the actor not so much (?)


Raunchy period drama Harlots (2017-current, Seasons 1 and 2 are only on Showmax) might be focussed on the commonplace business of prostitution in 1700s London, but its second instalment is looking towards a different world… thanks to a very different woman.

Harlots is a British-American period drama television series created by Alison Newman and Moira Buffini and inspired by The Covent Garden Ladies by Hallie Rubenhold. The series focuses on Margaret Wells, who runs a brothel in 18th-century England and struggles to raise her daughters in a chaotic household.

The series premiered on 27 March 2017 on ITV Encore in the United Kingdom, and on 29 March 2017 on Hulu in the United States. It was subsequently renewed for a second series that premiered on 11 July 2018 in the United States. On September 24, 2018, Harlots was renewed for a third season

The Plot

London in 1763 is booming, and numerous women make a living selling sex. Women's opportunity for economic advancement is to marry well or be a prostitute. The city’s brothels are run by canny, cruel businesswomen such as Margaret Wells and Lydia Quigley. The prostitutes are reviewed in Harris's List of Covent Garden Ladies, which some of the women are seen reading in the premiere episode.

But there is a new morality in the air as religious crusaders demand the closure of brothels, and the constables are happy to launch brutal raids.[2]

Episodes revolve round Mrs Wells' determination to improve her life and fortune by moving her brothel to Greek Street in Soho and serve a better class of Georgian society. To finance the move, after receiving a £100 fine, she auctions the virginity of her younger daughter Lucy as she had done before with her older daughter Charlotte when she was 12 years old. Charlotte is the lover of the besotted Sir George Howard, who wants her to sign a contract with him that makes him her "keeper."

Margaret's move to Greek Street puts her into conflict with Lydia Quigley, for whom she had previously worked as a prostitute. Lydia Quigley operates a high class brothel in Golden Square, serving rich, highly influential people in the judiciary and police, and blackmails a religious reformer into opposing Margaret.
