And finally a new occasional feature…

Leaving soon…

Walter Presents have announced that the Dutch financial drama The Prey (3×47-49m) and their Israeli dramedy Beauty and the Baker (10×30-36m) will be leaving their service on 31 July. Sadly only 5 days left but both are short enough series that you probably still have time to catch them before they disappear. We don’t always know these things in advance but when we do we’ll include them here.
