Attention 'Doctor Who' fans: TARDIS to land in the form of a free library

Dan Zemke, 28, of Detroit has been a fan of Doctor Who for years. He's wanted to build a replica of the show's TARDIS, or Time And Relative Dimension in Space time machine, for a while now.

 

On Saturday, he'll unveil his version: The 10-foot tall, 1-ton structure will serve as a shared library at the corner of Vermont and Warren in Detroit's historic Woodbridge neighborhood.
