It’s great that the Walter Presents box sets are coming to Sky. 

Executive Producer

  Agree about Walter Presents, I'm downloading Crow's Blood right now. The Heist looks good too, like Hunted but with money.

Boom Operator

The more subtitled foreign language shows I watch the less I like the English language ones. 

You soon forget they are in a different language because they have such gritty, intense plots.
