Arthur Dent

Arthur Dent is a fictional character, the hapless protagonist in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams. Along with Ford Prefect, Dent barely escapes the Earth's destruction as it is annihilated to make way for a hyperspace bypass.

Arthur spends the next several years, still wearing his dressing gown[?], helplessly launched from crisis to crisis while trying to straighten out his lifestyle. He rather enjoys tea, but seems to have trouble obtaining it in the far reaches of the galaxy.

In the radio, LP and television versions of the story Arthur is played by Simon Jones[?].
