As Northumberland swears revenge for his son's death and gathers his allies to fight the ailing king,the Lord Chief Justice,having rebuked Falstaff for being a bad influence on Hal,charges him to recruit an army on Henry's behalf. After brawling with the truculent Pistol Falstaff prepares to leave his lover, Doll Tearsheet,criticizing Hal to her,unaware that the prince is eaves-dropping. Falstaff assembles a motley crew from Justice Shallow but Henry's cousin Westmoreland arrests the rebel leaders after duping them into a truce. Hal,assuming his father is dead,dons the crown and is berated by the dying king,but they reconcile as Henry's last gesture is to crown his son. Hal accedes to the throne as Henry V but,now aware he must put frivolity aside,banishes Falstaff as his first act as ruler. Written by don @ minifie-1

Slightly superior follow-up to the BBC's Henry IV, Part 1
24 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This follow up to HENRY IV PART 1 is a little better, purely because there's more incident here. Falstaff plays a more important role in the political turmoil surrounding his royal leaders, and as a whole there's more gravitas and import than we found in the first part.

The production values remain strong, and Tom Hiddleston remains the best thing in it in a transitionary role, part transformed into his later leading man in HENRY V. Thankfully, Jeremy Irons gets more screen time, and shares at least one bravura moment with Hiddleston. Still, it's fair to say that the production is fumbled in places, with Falstaff remaining impenetrable and the two-part production as a whole a far cry from the excellence that was RICHARD II.
