I have the same problem. Obviously, it was a mistake to manually delete TM backups, but there is good reason: TM automatically deletes the oldest backups, and backs up every hour, so if TM drive is left plugged in for a few hours, you end up with lots of backups from today, maybe yesterday, but nothing historic...

I want a backup from 6 months ago, one from 3 months, one from last month and one from last week, as well as yesterday and this morning. Is that unreasonable? TM could do with some options!

Anyway... how can I empty the trash on my TM drive. (have tried sudo rm -rf trashes from the TM directory, but nothing happened.)
