Bishop Bell appears as a main character in Rolf Hochhuth's 1967 play entitled "Soldiers." Bell confronts Churchill on the morality of murder from the air, especially when it involves the murder of civilians. Such a confrontation never actually took place, but the Bishop and the Prime Minister had the thoughts and stated them. The PM detested Bell.
