Two More "Taggart-y" Tidbits

Thanks, everyone for your help with "Killer". When the new title shows up I'll add the episodes, their corresponding casts, and any further tidbits I can muster up. I know I've probably bored you silly with all this "Taggart" talk, but I suppose all of our's aim is to make the information on IMDb as accurate as possible.
Just a minor heads up on two further points for IMDb editors to consider:

1. The series title should now be changed to "Taggart" (1985-2010). I've tried to this but I can't figure out how.
2. I see you've now changed series 1 episodes to display three parts. That's great, however, these episodes also aired in three parts and should also be changed in the same way:

- Knife Edge
- Death Call
- The Killing Philosophy
- Funeral Rights
- Dead Giveaway
- Root of Evil
- Flesh and Blood
- Hostile Witness
- Evil Eye
- Death Comes Softly
- Nest of Vipers
- Double Exposure
- The Hit Man
- Ring of Deceit
- Death Benefits
- Gingerbread
- Death Without Dishonour
- Instruments of Justice
- Secrets
- Hellfire
- Prayer for the Dead
- Black Orchid
- Legends
- Devil's Advocate
- Angel Eyes
- Dead Man's Chest
- Apocalypse
- Babushka
- Berserker
- Dead Reckoning
- A Few Bad Men
- Long Time Dead

Best wishes,
Mateja

Hi Mateja -

This is confirmation that the series title has now been adjusted with the year range "(1985 - 2010)": https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088621/

Concerning the episode listings, have you submitted the missing episode titles or is this something you will need help adding?

Hullo,
No, I haven't submitted the multi-part episodes. I saw you did for series one and was merely suggesting you might want to consider doing it for the other series too. I could then subsequently try and add correct credits on all the multipart stories (as not all of the actors appear in all of the parts etc.) but it would take time considering the sheer amount of episodes of the series.

P.S. Any idea when the "Killer" mini-series title I added might show up? I'll add the three episodes and their corresponding credits when it does along with photos and such tidbits.

Best wishes,
Mateja

Hullo,
The year range has reverted to (1983-2010) and my "Killer" submission has not yet shown up.

Hi Mateja,

Have you got the submission reference for "Killer" and we can take a look? Is the title year range 1983-2010 incorrect? If so what should it be?

Regards,
Will

Hullo,
Yes. The correct year range is 1985-2010. "Killer" was actually a separate miniseries aired in 1983 featuring the character of Taggart but not as part of the "Taggart" series.

Here's my reference: 180530-013346-097000.

Hi Mateja -

The title year range has again been corrected (I'm not certain why the recent change was reversed), the title is now displaying the series year-range "1985-2010".

Concerning your recent new title submission for "Killer" (1983)", our records show that this title was not accepted due to a lack of supporting evidence.  Our editors need to verify the existence of this title and the attached cast and crew, as such you will need to resubmit the new title  with additional information.  I hope this information helps, let us know if you have any further questions.

Hullo,
I would have thought that the fact that it was already displayed on IMDb would have been more than enough to pass it. I'm not sure what kind of information I have to submit. My submission included a full cast and crew list (including a few information not included in the original IMDb page for "Killer") and a brand new (and more accurate) plot synopsis. I also added a link to STV's official page about the title. I'll resubmit, but if you could see that the editors are aware that the information is 100% correct I would be very grateful. I am trying to help improve IMDb's information here but sometimes it feels like an uphill struggle. For some reason, lots of 100% correct information I add gets rejected (there's loads of it that's still not on IMDb). As a published film historian and theorist I feel I could add a lot to IMDb but these constant hick-ups keep discouraging me.
I'm sorry if I seem annoyed but it is grating at times.

Best wishes,
Mateja

Hullo,
Just one more thing, ma'am. The new "Killer" title has shown up as a "TV Series" when it should be a "TV Mini-Series".

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Taggart Questions.

Hullo,
Three questions now that "Killer" has appeared.

1) I intend to add the three episodes and their corresponding cast/crew lists, but I have no evidence for any of this information besides my old VHS tape of the show. All online sources only list the cast/crew list for all three episodes together and not separately as I intend to add it. Do you have any idea how I can get around this problem?

2) The title is displayed as a TV series when it is actually a Mini-Series.

3) The title has two different run times. The complete series (currently unavailable) runs for 300 minutes, while the DVD/feature-length version (available) runs for 129 minutes. But IMDb only lets me add one runtime. How do I get around this?

Best wishes,
Mateja

Hi Mateja,

Please see the answers below.

1) Now that the parent series is live please add the cast/crew credits to the individual episodes, you shouldn't need to add evidence for this. If you encounter any issues let us know on this thread.

2) The TV Mini Series addition was still pending, this is now live.

3) We will accept more than one running time if there is a good case to and this is explained in the attribute, I've done so for you now.

4) I approve of your Terry-Thomas picture! "Hard cheese." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkfT7p6kBE0

Terry-Thomas

What ho William,
You're an absolute shower. I shall add the cast/crew details for the three episodes immediately. However, I must first admit to making a major cock-up. The length of the series is not 300 but 150 minutes as I originally submitted on IMDb. Maths is not my strong suit and somehow I multiplied 50 by 3 and got 300. Hey-ho...

In lieu of an apology, might I recommend Terry-Thomas in "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime" (if you haven't already seen it)? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0309810/



Best wishes,
Mateja

Hullo William,
I seem to have run into a bit of a problem here with my updates re: episodes. I submitted them today but now the first one says it "needs attention". I don't know if I should be worried because, like I said earlier, I don't have any proof of this information bar my old VHS tape which contains the credits. As you said I didn't need any evidence I thought I'd turn to you for help:

Here are the references:
180609-070359-052000
180609-073438-568000 
180609-082719-438000 

Best wishes,
