Why aren't his credits updated?  I've tried updating his credits for Murdoch Mysteries since February and it isn't being fixed.   His character's name is Constable John Hodge, but for some episodes he's listed without his first name.   I have tried to get his first name added to all his credits but someone at IMDb refuses to change it.

Please post the 18-digit reference number of the update so an IMDb representative can review the submission and respond.

IMDb lists the character names as they’re listed in the actual credits. If the first name is missing from the actual credits (in selected episodes), that’s the way it should be in IMDb also.

Why would the show only list his first name half of the time?  Makes no sense.

I didn’t say that was necessarily the case. But it could be possible. Can you check those episodes in question?

Why not just add his character's first name on here, where it's missing and be done with it?

I have done random checks of season 1 - 8 and they list him the same way every time as this screen shot shows.

Hi Ed,

I'm a little confused, is that the wrong screenshot? Are we still looking for Constable John Hodge - Brian Kaulback?

Hi Robin -

I reviewed the submissions you referenced earlier and checked the end-credits for those episodes and can confirm that Brian Kaulback is credited on-screen for these episodes under the name "Constable Hodge", see for example (on episode 4.1):



As Eboy mentioned above, we list credits based on how they are displayed on-screen, for these episodes Mr. Kaulback was credited under the name 'Constable Hodge', so we will need to retain those credits with the credited character name.

That makes no sense.  You guys had two different actors listed for one character on the show until I corrected it.   Do not rely on their closing credits.   I will keep submitting until it is changed.

Hi Robin,

It is IMDb policy to list the character names as they appear in the end credits. Please note IMDb tracks each contributor's accuracy over time and if any contributor repeatedly submits data which is inaccurate or which violates our policies, their contributions will require increasing levels of additional proof in order to be processed.

Regards,
Will
