Comment (by Steve Erlenborn <simon.sinister@…>):

 The question mark has nothing to do with these failures. If you manually
 run a query for "Are You Being Served?", you'll see that three TV series
 get returned.

     <title>Are You Being Served?</title>
     <description>Are You Being Served? is a British Sitcom that ran from
 1972-1985. The show revolved around "Grace Brothers Department Store" and
 in particular the goings on within the "Gentlemen's Ready-To-Wear" and
 "Ladies' Separates and Underwear" Departments. A store reorganization
 forced these two departments to share floor space, and the conflicts that
 this created set the tone for most episodes. Are You Being Served?
 showcases a bygone period of time in which the class structure was still
 very much alive. There was a strict hierarchy within Grace Brothers.
 Everyone knew their "places" and remained in them, unless, of course,
 there was a chance for advancement and then it was every man and woman for
 themselves. A spin-off series of Are You Being Served? was released,
 called Grace and Favour. Although in the U.S, it was named Are You Being
 Served? Again!</description>

 I ran a test of this on my system, which includes my patch #13159
 "Automatic lookup of metadata should prefer exact title match over partial
 title matches", and it selected the artwork from the correct TV series
 just fine.

 The other example, "Who's the Boss?" returns two TV series.
