* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Douglas has two scenes in HenryIVPart1 and is never mentioned again. In the play, Hal is so impressed by his courage in battle that he releases him without a ransom, but this scene is omitted. It's a shame, too, because Hal's account of Douglas's capture paints him in a much better light than the DirtyCoward noblemen who get sentenced to death by King Henry in the same scene.

''The Hollow Crown'', created by the BBC as a part of the "Cultural Olympics" in 2012, is a mini-series based on the ''Henriad'' or ''Major Tetralogy'', the quartet of Shakespeare's plays ''Theatre/RichardII'', ''Theatre/HenryIV [[Theatre/HenryIVPart1 Part 1]] and [[Theatre/HenryIVPart2 Part 2]]'', and ''Theatre/HenryV''. It features fairly lavish production values, and an all-star cast, headlined by Creator/BenWhishaw (Richard II), Creator/PatrickStewart (John of Gaunt), Creator/JeremyIrons (Henry IV), Creator/TomHiddleston (Henry V), Simon Russell Beale (Falstaff), and Creator/JohnHurt (Chorus in ''Theatre/HenryV'').

PBS aired the series in the United States in September 2013 as part of their ''Great Performances'' series.

* FamousLastWords: Richard II's last actual words were cut at "Go thou and fill another room in hell" (V.6.110), rendering it a PreMortemOneLiner of his HeroicLastStand. While the original "Mount, mount, my soul" sequence (V.6.112-116) is excised, BenWhishaw's acting of Richard's death throes somewhat [[ShowDontTell shows more than if it had been verbalized]].
