This is in reference to the excellent British TV series starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar. The series (or seasons, as we Americans say) are all jumbled up in the IMDb listings: when you click on 2017 — series one — the only two episodes listed are series two episodes five and six. When you click on 2018 — series two — you get all the other episodes from series one through three. Also the air dates for all these episodes are completely inaccurate — for example, the very first episode (series one episode one) most emphatically did NOT air on April 8, 2018.

Please fix this, IMDb.

Of course, contributors will need more information to fill in the gaps.

I don’t understand the ‘year’ display either. Why does it only have 2017 and 2018 when the show first aired in 2015?

However, the dates themselves appear to be accurate. The first episode has air dates from 2015 and later, but April 8, 2018 appears to be the accurate date for PBS in the U.S.

The display of release dates depends on user location, which can be confusing.

Thank you. When I click on that link, the episodes seem to be grouped correctly by series — all of series one under the first year, etc. — however the airdates still appear wildly inaccurate to me. For example, under series two, episodes three and four have the same airdate (May 6, 2018) and episodes five and six have airdates BEFORE three and four (Feb. 2 and 9, 2017 respectively). Whether you're talking the dates the episodes were first broadcast in the UK or the USA, that's just wrong and needs to be fixed.

The 2017 dates are from the UK, the 2018 dates are from the US.

Not all episodes have US dates listed yet.

Hi don0don,

I've checked the title and the episodes look correctly listed from an UK perspective corresponding to their initial release and airing dates, all in 2015 for the first season. As Peter explains the display of release dates is based on user location which can be a hindrance if the data is incomplete/incorrect. Looking at this source http://www.thefutoncritic.com/showatch/unforgotten/listings/ it suggests that all of the episodes of season 1 aired each Sunday starting from the 8th of April and ending on 13th May 2018.

Is this correct according to your knowledge of the series?

Regards,
Will

Hi, Will,

I get the series from Graboid when they are broadcast in the UK, not from PBS, so I really am not aware of when the episodes aired in the USA over PBS.

Be well,

Ok thanks, you can amend any inaccuracies in our release dates by going to the episodes in question and submitting a correction to the release date for that country.

Regards,
Will

The confusion created is a circumstance of the way the algorithm responsible for choosing which air dates to display works.
