THE HOLLOW CROWN (2012, BBC, 1 Season) is a series of British television films featuring William Shakespeare's History Plays. The first cycle is a brilliant adaptation of Shakespeare's second historical tetralogy, the Henriad: Richard II, Henry IV, Part I and Henry IV, Part II (treated as one film in two parts in the series) and Henry V. It starred Ben Whishaw, Jeremy Irons and Tom Hiddleston.
"For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground / And tell sad stories of the death of kings." The Hollow Crown: Richard II, with Ben Whishaw. His BAFTA, awarded for good reason.

Tom Hiddleston. May I recommend The Hollow Crown? It's like the 'good parts' version of Henry IV, Henry V, and Richard II. Also, Richard II is played by Ben Whishaw, who you may recognize as Q from the Bond movie, Skyfall.
