The Doctor is dead, the Earth descends into chaos and all because Donna’s life took a different turn some time in her past. Russell T Davies’s clever alternative timeline elicits an electrifying performance from Catherine Tate, as Rose breaks through from her parallel universe to tell Donna, “You’re gonna die.”
