Vincent And The Doctor is probably in my top five of the nuWho revival. Girl In The Fireplace, Family of Blood/Human Nature, and Blink have to be up there as well.
As for TNG vs Who, well, they're very different shows. Both have their extraordinary and not so great episodes. Indeed, TNG season five did have its share of phenomenal episodes (I'd put The Inner Light in the same category as V&TD.)
