      Sean O'Grady Independent (UK) My Name is Leon, a dramatisation of the novel by Kit De Waal, is just incredibly moving. Yet it also seems curiously, frustratingly unfinished. Rated: 4/5 Jun 14, 2022 Full Review Deborah Ross The Mail on Sunday (UK) It is heartbreaking. I was in pieces, I admit. But while this explores grief, loss and anger, the touch was always light. Rated: 4/5 Jun 13, 2022 Full Review Anita Singh Daily Telegraph (UK) If this is a show designed to gently introduce older children to tough themes, it feels right. Rated: 3/5 Jun 11, 2022 Full Review Pat Stacey Sunday Independent (Ireland) At heart, this 90-minute adaptation of Kit de Waal’s novel, set in the 1980s, is a tearjerker about a little boy who is separated from his mother and baby brother. But it’s also about racism in Birmingham... Rated: 3/5 Jun 29, 2022 Full Review Alison Rowat The Herald (Scotland) The cast was outstanding -- Monica Dolan, Olivia Williams, Christopher Eccleston anyone? -- so I bought a ticket. I was glad in the end that I did. Jun 17, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
