Syntax error in "Click here to copy existing credits from the series or other episodes" text

The various episodes of Home Fires http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4015216/combined have a writer whose attribute (copied from on-screen credits) is inspired by book "Jambusters". However when I copy that writer to a new episode, using the "Click here to copy existing credits from the series or other episodes" link, the attribute has a backslash before the two instances of double quotes: inspired by book \"Jambusters\". This is not just a display issue on the form and in the confirmation email; it also makes its way through to the published data.

I've corrected it before submission when I've noticed it, but there's one episode https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt5586292/ where I forgot to do so, which lets you see what happens; the corresponding submission is 160415-032939-498000 (OK, I couldn't sleep at 3:30 AM!).

I'll correct that episode once it's available for correction, but the underlying problem probably needs to be fixed.

The incorrect copying is fixed.

We are tracking down and fixing the cases that were incorrectly copied and they should all be cleaned up soon.
