Mayday is a small town steeped in pagan traditions where the crowning of the May Queen is the highlight of the day – until suddenly she goes missing.

Really, really not worth the effort...
Great cast, some semi-decent writing and a promising set-up... but goes nowhere. An utter waste of time, and ruined even further by a last episode which barely links to anything before it, fails to explain anything logically, and either leaves it on the clumsiest cliffhanger in history or tries to set-up a second season... which I'm praying doesn't occur without replacing whichever pointless non-entity came up with the narrative.
Best thing on bbc1 in ages
If you like a certain fairytale like feel to a show, this is really brilliant. It’s ending is more like something out of an old wives tale or a myth, which gives it a certain magic realism feel. Not unlike Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem of trying to find a way for the old mythic pagan England to fit into modern England. If you want a story that logically wraps itself up, this is not it. I hope me being pretentious has helped.
