Hi Phillida, 

I have decided to change my answer as although in this context you could use 'alors' or 'donc' for so, it won't always be the case so they are not truly interchangeable .

Donc = so / therefore 

Alors = so/ then/ yet 

You might be interested in reading this answer from Quora on the topic, all in French I am afraid.-
