The fortune teller gives Donna the chance to choose again and forces her to turn right this time. As she makes this new choice, a large beetle attaches itself to her back and she loses consciousness.
Donna's decision creates an alternative reality with major changes in history.
Donna initially seems happy with her secretarial position, her only concern being the claims of her colleagues about seeing a beetle on her back. However, turning right has meant that Donna has never met the Doctor and could not convince him to flee after killing the Racnoss children in " The Runaway Bride ".
As a consequence, the Doctor drowns in the resulting flood and is unable to intervene in several other events that drastically affect the Earth. Changes include the deaths of Sarah Jane Smith and Martha Jones in the events of " Smith and Jones ", the death of sixty million people in the United States from the breeding of the Adipose in " Partners in Crime ", and the loss of the Torchwood team while defeating the Sontaran invasion that occurred during " The Poison Sky ".
The Doctor's absence also allows the space-going Titanic to crash into Buckingham Palace during " Voyage of the Damned ", killing millions in the subsequent destruction of London. Britain rapidly descends into a dystopia, with many Londoners displaced and forced into assigned cramped living quarters under martial lawwith the government soon transferring all non-British citizens into internment camps.
Rose Tyler mysteriously appears to Donna to warn her of these events, but never reveals her identity to her. Rose's advice saves Donna and her family from the destruction of London. Sometime later, Rose appears again and tells her that she needs Donna to come with her, but that doing so will result in Donna's death.
Donna refuses, and Rose tells her that she will be back in three weeks. Three weeks later, Donna and Wilfred are using his telescope when they realise that the stars are disappearing from the sky.
Rose appears and Donna is now convinced to go with her. Rose takes her to UNIT and explains that the stars are going out in every universe and that the fabric of reality is collapsing, allowing Rose to travel between universes. Rose insists to Donna that the Doctor is the only one who can stop it.

She makes the decision to walk out in front of a passing truck and let it hit her, creating a traffic jam along the right-hand turning, causing her impatient past self to turn left instead. As Donna lies dying on the ground, Rose whispers a message into her ear for the Doctor. The alternative universe disintergrates, and Donna wakes up back on Shan Shen.
