The Hollow Crown: Henry IV, Part 2


Episode Info

Shakespeare's "Henry IV, Part 2" chronicles the rise of Prince Hal (Tom Hiddleston), who at the start of the history play is again on the outs with his father, the increasingly frail Henry IV (Jeremy Irons). In other events, the Lord Chief Justice (Geoffrey Palmer) attempts to separate the licentious Falstaff from the prince; and Henry IV faces yet another rebellion. Michelle Dockery appears as Lady Percy.
