Sunroof drain pipe blocked perhaps? Get someone to blow out the drain pipes with compressed air.

In that case I guess the door seal is not fitted right. Suggest you carry out a hose test.

Also check the bodywork anywhere it makes contact with the door seals, I had the same problem & I guessing that some got the metal part of an umbrella stuck in the door while it was closing, the result was a very small dent by the door seal & loads of water.
