A new film revives the 1980s rivalry between Alex â€œHurricaneâ€ Higgins (Luke Treadaway) and Steve â€œThe Nuggetâ€ Davis (Will Merrick), two very different personalities who helped popularise the sport on TV. In 1985, the world snooker final was watched by 18.5 million people, still a record for a post-midnight audience in the UK. Debuting on BBC iPlayer, The Rack Pack is directed by Brian Welsh (Glasgow Girls, Black Mirror), written by Shaun Pye, Mark Chappell and Alan Connor, the team behind A Young Doctorâ€™s Notebook. Nichola Burley plays Alexâ€™s wife Lynn Higgins, with James Bailey as Jimmy White and Kevin Bishop as Davisâ€™s manager Barry Hearn.
