The Rat Pack
Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins - mercurial, explosive, a natural showman. Steve ‘The Nugget’ Davis - clinical, ruthless, ‘boring’. This comedy drama transports you back to the glory days of snooker and charts the rivalry of its two giants which spanned a decade, dividing the critics and delighting the fans.
Higgins, the bad boy of the sport, lives on the edge and plays to the crowd – desperate for approval and love. Davis has an aura of invincibility, methodically and clinically playing his way to the top, helped by legendary manager Barry Hearn. Higgins’ chaotic life away from the table saw him battling not just his sporting rivals, but his inner demons and loving wife.
This comedy drama, exclusive to BBC iPlayer, is an affectionate look at a transformational period in the history of British snooker. Staring Luke Treadaway, Will Merrick, Kevin Bishop and Nichola Burley.
