It's stopped working and I don't know what's wrong with it!

I was at some traffic lights when it stalled, couldn't get started again so called AA. We spent 1 hour trying to work out the problem but to no avail. Symptoms are:

Engine turns over and seems to want to start but will not catch- it backfires and and sounds really rough. (has fuel/ oil/ water) Sometimes it caught briefly and then stopped dead.

We did manage to get it started a couple of times and it ran fine and as normal but on selecting a gear the engine lost power and stopped.

Recovery bloke reckoned it could be a timing sensor? but he didn't sound to sure.

I'd like to see if I can fix it without resorting to another tow to a garage so all suggestions gratefully received.
