I am also in the same boat as all of you are...I applied in August'2009 file was processed on 15 September'2009 (Like Soby) and medicals were done on 16 July'11 and still no change in Ecas and no update from the London VO.I did send them case specific query through my consultant and same standard reply which everyone else got it:
Please be advised that your application is awaiting a background review by an immigration officer. We will write to you when we are in a position to do so.
We hope this information is of assistance to you.

Can anyone help me that how long its gone take from hereon and moreover should I order for CAPIS notes as I haven't done so and I even plan to move back to my home country soon....and plan to send the PPT from there itself...through someone...any advice??
Thanks in advance...and gud luck to all !!!!
We are in the same boat not only with regard to the time line but also in the life circumstances too
I have done my medicals in March and as per the CAIPS note my B'Fd was July 2nd.
But no news till now.
I send 3-4 mails to all I got the same reply that VO is waiting for the Background Results.
I also was planning to apply for the CAIPS after medical but i thought PPR may come across before the CAIPS notes itself so did not apply.
Now I am also is planning to go back to my Home Country and have a loong break while waiting for the PPR, but still undecided due to many practical reasons.
But here I see a difference in the reply you got. It says the appln is awaiting a review by an Officer not that they are waiting for your Results.
So i feel your PPR is round the corner.
this same way happened to another Applicant in this forum too(Waterloo09). He got this Reply and in few days he got PPR.
So i hope and pray the same may happen to you too.
Anyway let us each other updated. All the best
