So until today I am thinking of one of the few things we can talk about, the way immortality will effect the common man. We've talked about the hardships physically and emotionally that the MDD will potentially cause them, but what about the hardships they might cause? We've talked about the possible causes for MDD and we've postulated how the team might deal with it (well we mentioned it) but we have not yet considered, the human threat to team Torchwood.
In a world where no one can die the human race would more than likely panic. That is the nature of man in the face of the unknown. Some might be quietly contemplative, others may be loud in their demand for answers but the one's to worry about are those who might aim to capitalize on the state of the world. You have to consider that in a world where no one can die anarchy may ensue, communities may crumble. We may we see riots in the streets, the challenge of government, the attempted conquer of establishment and yes, a sinister plot or two.
Wouldn't it be interesting, if the cause of the MDD wasn't really the fight to win throughout the series? Consider if the cause was not the problem, maybe they know it will wear off or maybe they have a solution in site but int he meantime unsavory folks, might be taking advantage of the fact that the high ups are distracted by a world-wide epidemic and they are for the time being, indestructible. Something is telling me that this isn't a idea they are going to too fully explore in TW: MD, but it sure is a fun concept.
What do you all think? Could the big bad of TW: MD be a nefarious human suddenly gifted immortality? How do you think the masses would react to sudden world-wide immortality? How would you? xx
