Well it is a big yellow Edit Page button, but you can also click the edit link at the top right of the cast, which takes you here:

http://www.imdb.com/updates?edit=tt27...

Then select "Add 1 credit" from the drop down menu and fill your credit in.

I assume you were uncredited (or someone would have added you when they added everyone else - although with British TV there is no guarantee), and if so, then read up on the guidelines:

https://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?u...

The problem might come from this bit:

2. You need to have at least one pre-existing credited entry in the database.


If you don't have any credits listed, your entry won't be displayed. If this is an uncredited role, of course.

Just a note, that button used to say "update." They changed the button but not the help pages describing it.

Well spotted. That'd be worth flagging up, as it is clearly causing confusion.

As with many software projects, the documentation tends to lag the implementation. [smile]

Been there, seen that! Sometimes it gets forgotten in some far reaches of the sites. It happened, too, when this board started.
