Regex help needed

can any experts out there please help me with extracting series from a title

[Otherland 03]

I need to pull the series and series index and lose the [ ]

I can get the entire thing to series but cant work out how to seperate them

this is what I have to date

(?P<author>[^_-]+) -?\s*(?P<series>.+?)(?P<series_index>[0-9]*)\s*-\s*(?P<title>[^_].+) ?

Gratefully appreciate help
Cheers
Tony

I don't quite understand the question. What result do you expect?
e.g.
[Otherland 03]
series=Otherland
index=03
?

this is what I'm using... it requires the space-hyphen-space between author, series(if there) and title, but it will filter out the brackets

(?P<author>[a-zA-Z'. ]+?) - \[?((?P<series>[a-zA-Z' ]+) (?P<series_index>[0-9\.]+)\]? - )?(?P<title>[^\.]+).*
