2) The reader had to be shown how Holmes was on in Dartmoor at the same time events Watson was relaying information. He is shown as the Moon rises behind him when Sir Henry and Watson are out hunting the convict.

THOB is my favorite book of all time. I've read it many times and also listened to the librivox collection over and over again.
They also needed a red herring relating to Barrymore as to why he was creeping around signaling someone on the moors. And to figure out if it related to his apparent trip to London. ACD had to have something to throw into the mix to make the solution to the crime harder to discover, hence Seldon.
