Tonight I had occasion to speculate on the number of references there may be to "dressing-gown" within the Sherlockian cannon... So I checked.

The answer is 42.

There's more hidden in the guide. Like when Marvin says he knows the what the question is and he has a brain the size of a planet... His brain wasn't contained in his head or body. Something they didn't understand when they made the film, and just gave him a big head. There was an awful lot they didn't understand when they made the film... like punchlines.

You're very Douglas Adams of late! He has finally got a headstone on Highgate East side. A book shape.

I will have to visit. It was one of those "remember where you were when..." moments when I heard he'd died.
