If I moved backwards at the speed of light holding a torch, what would happen at the start of the beam?

Luke Pullar asked the Naked Scientists:
   If I move backwards at the speed of light (bear with me here) and turned on a torch, what would happen to the start of the beam of light? Would it be a glow frozen in one place? Would stationary bystanders be able to see a terminating light source, dangling in the air/space/whatever?
What do you think?
