Hi

Thanks for the replies.

@ rumb, I don't think the handbrake is stuck - the car will reverse fine and if I rev it while in Park / Neutral and quickly stick it into Drive, it moves forwards a little and then cuts out. Is it worth physically checking the brake anyway?

If I put it into drive as normal, it cuts out almost immediately.

Can I safely open up the transmission to have a look? Or would I be likely to see anything? Is there something I can do to check the torque convertor?

Thanks

I haven't done anything further with mine since so I can't help you I'm afraid. If you do get a solution, please let me know though.
