The Queen's Gambit - Credits

Award-winning hit Netflix series set in the 1950s about a chess superstar, Beth Harmon, who grows up in an orphanage after the death of her mother.  She discovers she has a remarkable talent for the game, learning to play from the orphanage caretaker.  The story also tells a tale of addiction after she becomes addicted to the tranquilisers that the orphanage dispenses to 'balance the disposition' of the girls in their care. The series follows her adoption by a childless suburban couple, her rise through the ranks to play in the highest echelons of competitive chess and her growing dependency on drugs and alcohol.

Anya Taylor-Joy starred as Beth Harmon with Chloe Pirrie playing her mother Alice, who we see in flashbacks struggling with her mental health. 

Winner of multiple awards including two Golden Globes and two Emmys.
