As much as I was captivated by this strong episode (IiRT), I found
myself noticing Sheridan's whiskers.  And could not help wondering if
the episode were shot over a period of days, or, if not, how the beard
growth was accomplished (CGI? :-) )

You said,

which could be interpreted to mean the whole shebang was done at once,
or not.

I'm curious.

Also, just to say what a tour de force this episode was.  I remarked
to my son about halfway through that by definitely NOT being an
hommage to The Prisoner, it was an even stronger hommage.  This from
someone who saw TP on its original US broadcasts, and who bought the
laser-discs of the series.

In other words, Bravo!

Bruce had some time between episodes, and began to grow the beard for
real, and we darkened it down for later acts.
