Trivia

The title, -30-, is an old reporters' shorthand which means end of story. It is also the title of a 1959 'Jack Webb' movie about a day in the life of a Los Angeles newspaper. It is always written with hyphens fore and aft. Its origin has been attributed to the early days of telegraphy, when XXX (which is 30 in Roman numerals) signified "end of message." Whatever its origin, the use was established around the time of the Civil War. Since it was originally intended as an instruction to typesetters, its appearance has declined since the advent of computerized typesetting. See more »

'D.O.A.' Updated With Twists
4 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second half of this story is impossible to follow, and maybe that's the point: international espionage is so complicated and we live in a world today of animosities and terrorists that nobody knows who to believe. So, in this story, one minute the Russians are the bad guys, then the Israelis, then the Palestines or Syrians or Americans or you name it. So-and-so is a spy or a spy-wannabe; so-and-so was set up to be killed or was it so-and-so? Yikes, all of this stuff will give you headache trying to figure it out.

The story starts out simply enough, especially for those classic film buffs who are familiar with the 1950 movie "D.O.A.." That's where a guy who is poisoned and knows he's dying and runs to the police, the rest of the story trying to find out who killed him.....because he'll be dead for sure within a week. That happens here, too, thanks to a deadly poison called polonium. The mystery is who killed him and why.....or, as we find out, whether he was the target in the first place. Other people also get poisoned along the way and all die a horrible death. The makeup department worked overtime on this episode, showing how the poison made these people look worse and worse.

The main guy who is poisoned turns out to be an old journalist friend of Logan's, a man "who covered by back" according to the detective, so he's happy to do whatever he can to help the victim.

By the way, the title for this episode: "30," is a reference to reporters who used to type that number at the end of their stories, signifying "the end."
