    Hi

    Do you prefer the episode guide showing two parts of a episode separately, even though the synopsis is the same, or would you like to see them as one episode, with the different air dates in the notes?

    I'd prefer the two parts shown as one. I always think of it as one episode anyway.

    Two please.
    And I believe that is the way it should be done, seeing as they air on different dates

    I prefer both parts listed separately. It would be nice if the moderator would correct the numbering. 38 and 66 are skipped.

    two for sure, different air dates and the bbc saying they are x-1 / x-2 (x-3 / x-4) just demands that. next to that are separate synopsis possible, it just requires some extra work from the contributors.

    Episode guides should reflect the show as originally broadcast, so one episode guide per episode, and two parts per story it is. Synopses should not be duplicated, however, as each is supposed to be "a descriptive summary about the episode, its plot and its main characters" while remaining spoiler-free, and the story does move on between episodes.
