Arthur Dent

Arthur Dent seems to be having trouble with his lifestyle.

One morning, he woke up with a hangover to discover his house being demolished. As he lay in front of the bulldozers, his friend Ford Prefect took him to the pub and revealed that he was an alien.

Shortly after this, his native planet was destroyed to make way for a hyperspace bypass.

Things got really confusing when he discovered a girl he once met at a party had absconded with a two headed alien on a stolen spaceship.

This was just a prelude to a string of very strange events, throughout which he would be utterly unable to get a cup of tea.
