You've failed to notice that the podcasts have different PIDs from the episodes 
previously downloaded, so they'll all download again.

I've use the --pid-recursive option with a series pid for multiple podcast 
series and the individual episodes certainly do not have different pids from 
those already downloaded. My scheduled GiP runs just download the latest 
episodes. If you are experiencing episodes being downloaded time and again the 
I would suggest you either have the --force option on somewhere or your 
download history is being cleared.

No, the podcast series have different pids from the corresponding main downloads, for example ...

Original series: b043wvt9

Podcast series: p02pc9ny

Most recent three episodes from original series flagged as unavailable:
5 Live Science - Buying Breast Milk Online, BBC Radio 5 live, m00161g8
5 Live Science - Science in Film, BBC Radio 5 live, m001682t
5 Live Science - Hot Cross Puns: Easter Science Q & A, BBC Radio 5 live, m0016jdn

Podcast editions which are available:
5 Live Science Podcast - Buying Breast Milk Online, BBC Radio 5 Live, p0bz4ztr
5 Live Science Podcast - Science in Film, BBC Radio 5 Live, p0c06v0k
5 Live Science Podcast - Hot Cross Puns: Easter Science Q & A, BBC Radio 5 Live, p0c1g25k

... and unsurprisingly therefore using '--pid p02pc9ny --pid-recursive' they did indeed all download again, merely for me to delete them.
