Storyline

Twin Peaks, WA comes to Dorking, Surrey as the villagers of a heavily wooded town steeped in mysticism gather for May Day, an annual festival to celebrate ancient pagan rituals. Fourteen year old Hattie Sutton is the Queen of May Day. A wreath of flowers and silky ribbons crowns her blonde hair as Hattie cycles to take catch up with the lead float in the parade. But, she never reaches the festival. Written by LA-Lawyer

Interesting but overlong mystery which needed some script work
18 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

As others have noted, this has a Twin Peaks vibe, which is a good thing, but it also has big script problems. After taking four hours to build up the story and cast suspicion on everyone, the final hour wraps things up by introducing at least two major plot points that came rather unfairly out of the blue (the villains's motive and a supernatural bent in the finale). Had the story played fairer with the viewer, I would have liked this more. There are virtually no likable characters, and even the ones who might seem to be moral centers are not, and spending five hours with people you don't really care about is a real test of the viewer's constitution. Decent acting, certainly, and a nice mood is set throughout, but overall not satisfying.
