42?

When they first enter the bank there's a huge "42" shown several times. Is it the answer to everything? Or just a funny in- joke? ( since Martin was in "a hitchhiker's guide to the universe)

Re: 42?

Possibly too obscure of a Douglas Adams reference? But I was thinking maybe they thought it might be funny since "42" is the answer to everything. Just another layer of subtext to add to your plate when trying to analyze every episode in minutiae.

Or, maybe I'm just over-thinking........http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: 42?

"Tower 42" is an actual skyscraper in the City of London.

Though, I like the reference to said "42". http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
But this has to be a total coincidence imo.

Re: 42?

Ah..............NOW I understand! (I forgot that 42 was the answer to all questions.  )
Yes, I too think this is a coincidence.

Very cool! I had no idea. ... Also, just FYI, there's a Doctor Who episode named "42". Hmmmm...Wonder why the Brits have such a fascination with the number?http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/nervous.png

There is no such thing as "over-thinking" in the Sherlock fandom. Just saying,

Re: 42?

I thought it was the floor from Sebastian's office because of the "ding" sound. It reminded me of an elevator door.
