Despite repeated advice to them. IMDB have used another person's biography and credits, and killed me off with a heart attack. They refuse to change it. This has caused immense distress to people who knew me and looked me up. I've given them one more chance:  if they remain obdurate my only recourse will be to consult solicitors and sue for great personal distress, though I'm not naturally litigious. It seems IMDB are not to be trusted - beware what you read.

I take it that this is you: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0852817/re.... Since it is the only Malcolm Taylor I find who has a date of death. My condolences on your early demise!


Can you tell us, please, exactly what steps you have taken to have this corrected?

Unfortunately as I was writing an edit, someone else posted and my edit flew out the window. So, let me try again. I can only assume you were serious when you said IMDb "killed you off with a heart-attack, if not, as Bob requests, can you please be more specific as to the problem and which Malcolm Taylor is you?

There is only one Malcolm Taylor listed as deceased and this article would indicate that us a valid status: http://www.thestage.co.uk/features/ob...

Are some of your credits listed on that Macolm Taylor's page: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0852817/re... and, if so, which ones? Threatening lawsuits is counter productive, let us try to get it fixed instead.

Hi. I have attempted three times to adjust my details - which should conform more to Malcolm Taylor (iii) - (viz Dark River, amongst others) but nothing gets changed. There's nothing more I can do.
