It wasn't in the TV adaptation! Really, so how do I know it?
I think the phrase was in the adaptation, I don't remember how it was worked in. After all, it is the title of the book, and they had the Powell fans to think of...
But the naked lady wasn't featured, or if she was I don't remember it. In the book, it's pretty well a side issue, mentioned almost in passing as one theory about how he got the name.
I apologise for the not-AR nature of this exchange, but Powell is one of the very rare authors who created a whole universe as consistent and creative as AR's. You know the characters as well as you know your own family, and their 'presence' marks the mental view of the past in the same way.
When in the Lake District for quite different reasons- to do a piece on remote policing, or to do a recce for a tour of Arts and Crafts houses, I couldn't avoid, as I looked over Windermere, "seeing" a white and a brown sail. Or as we drove from Windermere to Bowness, "seeing" an old car driving down the hill with us. And feeling happy about it.
