Wikipedia’s entry on Doctor Who‘s Sarah Jane Smith clears something up. The good news: there are now apparently two additional Doctor Who spinoff series in production (to accompany next year’s Torchwood). The bad: what I had thought was a Sarah Jane & K-9 show is actually two: the independently-produced K-9 Adventures, and Sarah Jane Investigates from the BBC and writer/producer Russell T. Davies. Either show may not feature both characters, which is quite a disappointment, as it would have been more than the sum of its parts.

I suppose one way to describe it is what Spotlight could have and should have been.
