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.
Okay, so maybe he overestimated the damage. He was in a hurry.

Still, killing several million people and irradiating most of southern England is no small matter.

Actually come to think of it, how do we know what long term effect fallout from the explosion might have on the rest of the planet?
