The Hollow Crown: Henry IV, Part 2

In the aftermath of the Battle of Shrewsbury, Northumberland learns of the death of his son. The Lord Chief Justice (Geoffrey Palmer) attempts, on behalf of the increasingly frail king, to separate Falstaff (Simon Russell Beale) from Prince Hal (Tom Hiddleston). The rebels continue to plot insurrection. Falstaff is sent to recruit soldiers and takes his leave of his mistress, Doll Tearsheet (Maxine Peake). The rebel forces are overcome, bringing comfort to the dying king, who is finally reconciled to his son. Falstaff rushes to Hal's coronation with expectations of high office, only to be rebuffed by the former prince who has now become King Henry V.
