Water inside the door

Today morning on my way to work I noticed a splashing sound which came from driver's door (that is passenger side door for the UK guys). When I came to a full stop, I heard quite clearly water moving around in my door. And a lots of it!
Inspected the window seals and they are intact, staying solid where they should. I guess the mirror base is letting water in? Haven't had the chance to inspect further.
Has anyone seen this before? I'm a bit worried about electronics there...

AFAIK there are no drain holes on the bottom of the doors... because... well water shouldn't be present in that area. Any tips how to get rid of leakage? To be honest, I've never seen the naked door, so don't know what to expect.

Plan B is to buy fishes and convert the door see through... that would make an interesting sight...

Doors are not water-tight.
There are always drain holes in the bottom of the door.

Part of routine maintenance is to ensure those drain holes are clear to allow the water to flow through.
