Oh god I feel quite depressed now, we lost many talented people this year as we do any year of course. Seeing them all in one list like that though is quite a shock.

No I don't think there has Kirsten, it just seems that way. If you look at any year you will find a lot of public figures have died.
As you get older though you tend to have heard of more of them.
