Are the cables sticking? How does the handbrake lever feel? How many clicks. It could be out of adjustment, or just worn. What did the brake linings look like when you had the drums off. Did the drums come off easily? If they were loose I would again say that the brakes need adjustment.

Right, I think I've understood what is happening. If you stamp on the brake pedal then the "hill hold" function is activated which locks the brakes on for about 5 seconds - I believe it does this through the brake hydraulics (brake fluid, not the handbrake cable). So when you go to pull away after just a short stop, the brakes are indeed locked on. If this is stil happening after a longer period of time, maybe there is something wrong with the hill-hold function?

To check if this is happening, try coming to a halt gently without having to press the brake pedal very far down. If you can then pull away immediately without feeling that something is holding the car back ...... it's what I've described above
