My money would be on the bowden cable failing. Sometimes they break or the tab on the end falls off. If this is the case then you will need to get the inner door trim panel at least partially free so you can get at the latch release.
You really need the door open to get the trim off completely. I strongly recommend getting hold a set of plastic trim tools. Cost you a couple of quid and can save you a fortune in broken tabs and clips.
