Two new preview clips from Doctor Who's midseason finale, "A Good Man Goes to War,'' have been released, and while the first has River Song (the wonderful Alex Kingston) hint at the Doctor's darkest hour yet, the second also teases at how dangerous a Time Lord can be when crossed.

Spoilers ahead!

"This is the Battle of Demons Run, the Doctor's darkest Hour. He'll rise higher than ever before and then fall so much further."

The first clip is pretty dramatic, bar the Roman Centurion outfit Rory's (Arthur Darville) wearing once again, which provides a few seconds of comic relief, as River Song talks about what's coming up for the Doctor.

See for yourselves:

In the second clip below, Dorium Maldavar (Simon Fisher-Becker), who was last seen in "The Pandorica Opens" when the Star Wars-ish blue-skinned alien provided a Vortex manipulator fresh off the wrist of a handsome Time Agent to River Song, warns one-eyed villainess Madame Kovarian (Frances Barber) about what's coming for them.

Remember how River called the Doctor "The Oncoming Storm"? We think it's not gonna be good for them. In fact, in the words of the Doctor himself, it's gonna be "very not good at all."

What do you think?
