Ronnie O'Sullivan who, not unusually, found himself at the centre of controversy in the second session when he appeared to take the tip off his cue, forcing a 15-minute break. He escaped any punishment.

He arrived in Britain as an orphaned refugee from the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia without a penny to his name. By the time of his death in 1991 he was the charismatic and tyrannical tycoon at the head of a vast media empire. This drama starring David Suchet as Robert Maxwell charts the days when his world is collapsing, with cracks appearing in his business empire and how his obsession is growing with both power and his great rival Rupert Murdoch. Writer Craig Warner; Producer/Director Colin Barr

PICK OF THE DAY MAXWELL David Suchet plays newspaper baron Robert Maxwell, who ruled by fear and died in desperation.
DRAMA OF THE WEEK Maxwell 9.00pm BBC2
There's a telling scene early in this drama about larger-than-life press baron Robert Maxwell. While dining with business associates on the roof of his Mirror Group HO, he invites them to join him in taking a leak over the edge of the high-rise building. "Don't the people below notice?" someone asks. "No-one notices anything!" Maxwell replies cheerily, something he might also be saying of his shady approach to business and the plunder of his employees' pension funds.
David Suchet brilliantly captures the ursine pomp of Maxwell and his fruity growl. (Given Bafta's fondness for impressions - six of the eight acting nominations this year are for real-life roles -he'll do well next year.) He also conveys the desperation that sets in as Maxwell's business empire starts to unravel and he becomes a haunted figure, bugging his own staff and pursuing his secretary (My Family's Daniela Denby-Ashe, also superb).
It's a memorable performance in a gripping tale of business chicanery on a grand scale. One quibble: whoever thought of casting the wide-eyed Dan Stevens (from The Line of Beauty) as a city finance director needs to get out more. David Butcher Read all about it!: page 12
