Need an admin to delete a duplicate episode

Episode "McDonald & Dodds" (2020) {(#3.3)} tt14700526 is a duplicate of "McDonald & Dodds" (2020) {The War of Rose (#2.3)} tt12900828.

Although The War of Rose will be first shown in the UK on 3 July 2022, as if it were 3.3 of the third season which is currently being broadcast, release dates for other countries prove that it has already been shown there as part of season 2, so its episode number should be 2.3. ITV do believe in messing things up by showing seasons of various programmes piecemeal rather than showing the whole of a season on consecutive weeks.

Assuming you agree with my logic, episode "McDonald & Dodds" (2020) {Clouds Across the Moon (#3.4)} tt21028658 needs to be renumbered to 3.3.

Hi martin_695862 -

The  episode "Clouds Across the Moon (#3.4)" has now been combined with episode "Clouds Across the Moon (#3.3)" and the changes should be live on the site shortly.

Additionally, you mentioned that above episode is a duplicate of "The War of Rose (#2.3)", and is just being re-screened as part of Season 3, is that correct? If so, this should be listed as a shell episode.

Cheers!

Cheers!

Your edit doesn't appear to have been completed yet. Perhaps because episode 3.3 and 3.4 have different release dates listed. The correct date for the episode Clouds Across the Moon is 10 July.
