The Masked Singer UK viewers are convinced just about anyone who's ever been in Doctor Who appeared in tonight's show!

Panellist Mo Gilligan joked that he thought Phoenix was "all of the Doctors" and it seemed the audience agree.

Because just about everyone was guessing Doctor Who actors for every contestant.

But we can't really blame them, because there were A LOT of clues about time travel in this evening's episode of the hilarious family show.

Phoenix was top for Doctor-Who-related guesses.

Some fans are convinced he is David Tennant, who was the 10th Doctor. They reckon the sticks of rock in his video point to David's appearance in the TV show Blackpool.

And they're positive that the time-travel references and the use of War of the Worlds, point to a Doctor.

But other fans think Phoenix is Matt Smith, better known as the 11th Doctor.

They think the football in the video points to Matt, who played the beautiful game before he became an actor.
