Time was in Primary School, students' pictures of February would be represented by snowdrops and whatnot. But that's unlikely to happen nowadays, as 1) Michael Gove would replace art with testing the shit out of everything if he had half a chance and 2) early Spring vistas more closely resembles a busy Saturday car park in Atlantis.

Outsized reaction to celebrity death is not a new thing, it even has its own entry on Wikipedia: Mourning sickness. Its zenith in this country was the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, a period in our history during which we behaved so peculiarly that we still can't look each other in the eye whilst talking about it. A madness took us, like a Bacchanalian orgy, only with less orifice-filling and more commemorative crockery.

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heroin

So another life is lost, to be blamed on the use of heroin. Thus the so-called "war on drugs" will be perpetuated. The lessons of prohibition - that it is the criminality, not the drug, that does the real damage - will remain unlearnt.

Philip Seymour Hoffman and The 'Needle In His Arm'

We like brilliant men to be brilliant at all times and so we brush aside any indication that brilliant men might, like us ordinary men, be capable of brokenness, which means men like Hoffman and Heath Ledger before him, though richly brilliant, often end up dying the impoverished death of broken men who have been impossibly fractured by some intimate failure.

There's a lot to get through, at times too much, and as someone who hasn't read the book it can feel like the writers are box-ticking to cover every plot point fans of the book are expecting. It's an understandable approach but it doesn't make for a wholly satisfying narrative.
