More significantly, in "Voyage of the Damned," I thought they were saying that, if the ship crashed, its engines would explode and cause a chain reaction that would wipe out all life on Earth. But in "Turn Left," when the ship does crash, only London seems to have been affected.
No, the episode makes it clear that much of southern England was wiped out and the rest of the country economically and environmentally devastated as a result.
