[edit]

SCHOOLBOY Peter Fowler, 18, told friends that he had invented a machine which—like the one in the "Dr. Who" television serial — made space-and-time travel possible, a court was told yesterday.

Fowler, it was alleged. also claimed to have formed a company called The Time Machine Enterprise (Polydimensional Transport Ltd.).

And—the court at Lymington, Hants, was told—he sold £19 10s. worth of printed "share certificates" to a 17-year-old pupil at his grammar school.

It was one of several schemes for getting money from the other but, the court heard.

Fowler and another boy also got the seventen-year-old to sign an IOU for a £500 card debt, it was said.

And, the court was told, the pair beat up the seventeen-year-old, made him strip, photographed him and threatened to distribute the pictures if he did not pay £100.

Fowler, of Ashley, New Milton, Hants., faced charges of demanding money by force, obtaining money by false presences and assault.

His alleged accomplice had not been traced, the court was told.

Fowler was sent for trial, bail was refused
