One of the reasons why Henry IV Part 1 is my favourite is the plethora of drunk rap-battles. I mean, if you don’t appreciate Falstaff and Prince Hal exchanging insults in front of a baying audience of drunks and bar-wenches, I don’t even know what to do with you. And, of course, there’s Prince Hal’s impression of his father. Tom Hiddleston is known for doing excellent impersionations of his co-stars, and his Jeremy Irons was brilliant. Pictures barely do it justice. He even added a scarf and hat. Even moreso than the scene where King Henry gives Hal the “stop being a wastrel” speech, Hiddleston’s Jeremy Irons impression convinced me that he really was the King’s firstborn son.  — from The Hollow Crown: Henry IV, Part 1.
